    MS removed that possibility long ago.

    (If you use Classic Shell start menu (free), its search box - for internet searches if enabled- respects your choice of browser).

    I'm a big fan of Start8 and Start10.....not free but both have 30 day trial periods. For me these are easier for the end user to use.
