Add Google.co.uk as a search provider in Internet Explorer (IE8)

Microsoft seem to have been making it harder to personalise the search engines used by the IE search box. There is a process for adding any search engine but it doesn’t seem to be as easy to find as it once was.

To add a new search provider, simply click on the link below and follow the instructions:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/searchguide/en-uk/default.mspx?dcsref=http://runonce.msn.com/runonce2.aspx

You can make any search engine the default option when it is added – by ticking the ‘make default’ box – or by the following process:

Click the little arrow by the search box and choose ‘Manage Search Providers’

Clicking on your chosen search provider

Then finally click the ‘Set as default’ button

Happy searching!
