    Windows 10 Edge "Web Search Bar" is new and I want to disable


    Hello,

    I use Edge and I guess I just had a new update on my computer. I now have 2 internet search tabs showing up. The normal Edge "search or enter web address" is what I use and like. Now, I have a new "search the web : web search" bar below it and it covers about 1/2 of my popular websites. Please tell me how to get rid of the new "search the web bar." Thank you so much.

    This appears to be an unintended side effect introduced in the latest Cumulative Update, there were other Edge issues introduced too. As yet we don't know how to cure it. For more discussion of these issues, see...

    @boz23727,

    I have found a workaround that restores a single search box. Unfortunately you have to use Bing as your search engine.
    See this post:

    Just now this morning started seeing this. At first thought it was malware. Cuts off half the top site information.

    Yes, seems Microsoft have done something to address this. The fix (whatever it was) seems to have made the search box temporarily disappear for some of us (me included) if you use another search engine instead of Bing but it's easy to make it return. See this post for more on that.
