    Google Search will not open in Explorer!

    Hello everyone

    You have been most helpful with my questions and I now hve my new Aver V13 set up except...........................

    I use Google Search (not Chrome) as my search engine and have the icon on my desktop. My problem is that it always opens in MS Edge which I do not like!

    So each time I have to click on the three line in the R/H corner of the page and scroll down to 'open in explorer' and then the Google Search appears with the toolbar on the top as I used to have. However when I go out of it and into it again ir always reappears in Edge!

    Being a newbie to Win 10 I am afraid to uninstall Edge. What should I do please as I always used Google Search with the toolbar on my previous Win 7 laptop.

    In simple terms please.

    Thanks again
