    How to change search engine back to Google in Address toolbar


    I managed to change the search engine to Google in the new Win10 search located in the menu and also in Edge. However, the little address toolbar, that can be added to the taskbar by putting a checkmark in the address toolbar after right clicking on the taskbar and choosing toolbars has suddenly switched to Bing as the search engine. I would love to have this set at Google as it always was. I find this toolbar so much more convenient than the one that came with the new win10 menu. I have already turned off Cortana over there. I hope I have explained which tool bar I am referring to. Thanks for any helpClick image for larger version.

    In IE go to Settings > manage add-ons > search providers. Down at the bottom left there should be an add more search providers option. Add google then set it as the default. Then remove Bing if you want.
