Adding More Search Engines

By default, Internet Explorer initially submits the search text to the Windows Live search engine. (The default search engine is also the one that Internet Explorer uses for the Address bar AutoSearch.) If you want access to other search engines—or search providers, as Internet Explorer insists on calling them—via the Search box, follow these steps:

1.
Click the drop-down arrow to the right of the Search box.

2.
Click Find More Providers. Internet Explorer displays a web page with links to various search engines, including AOL, Ask.com, and Google.

3.
Click the link for the search engine you want to add. The Add Search Provider dialog box appears.

4.
If you want Internet Explorer to use this search engine as the default, activate the Make This My Default Search Provider check box.

5.
Click Add Provider.
