    How to Show Web Search Results in Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer


    warning   Warning
    This tutorial is no longer valid starting with Windows 10 version 1903.



    When searching the web from Search on the taskbar, the Bing search results can display in Microsoft Edge (default) or Internet Explorer.

    If you use a screen reader, you may want to make the web search results open in Internet Explorer instead of Microsoft Edge.

    Cortana and Search has been separated starting with Windows 10 version 1903.

    This tutorial will show you how to set to show web search results in Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer for your account in Windows 10.

    Note   Note
    Starting with Windows 10 build 16251, you can now view the results that Cortana has for you without launching the web browser. For some questions, the Cortana pane will expand automatically, quickly showing you exactly what you need to know. It works with movies, celebrities, stock prices, weather, flight status – you name it! If Cortana doesn’t have a quick answer for your query, the pane won’t automatically expand. No worries! Just click the arrow next to the relevant web suggestion (or press the right arrow key) to see what the web has for you.
