As is known I hope everyone, with the latest versions of every web browser you can search the Internet from the address bar. Su tutti i browser basta scrivere una parola o una frase sulla barra indirizzi per avviare la ricerca su Google, se esso è il motore di ricerca predefinito. La stessa cosa avviene sui browser per cellulari Android o iPhone, dove la barra degli indirizzi può essere utilizzata per fare ricerche col motore predefinito. La ricerca su internet, in el paese, non ha purtroppo alternative e deve sempre essere fatta con Google, l'unico che veramente funziona bene (gli altri come Bing o DuckDuckGo, nella versione del paese, sono piuttosto inefficienti).
If for some reason, following the installation of a program, of a very annoying toolbar or for one click too many, we find ourselves with a browser that has a search engine other than Google (usually it's Bing or Yahoo, but there are also fake search engines full of advertisements), let's see in this guide how change the browser's default search engine on PC, Android Smartphone, iPhone and iPad, to Google search on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and the newcomer to Windows, Edge.

Let's make sure that next to the item Search engine using in the address bar is present Google; in caso contrario apriamo il menu a tendina e selezioniamolo. In alternativa possiamo impostare Google el paese come motore di ricerca predefinito cliccando sulla voce Manage search enginesby pressing the key Add and using like URL the address:
In the same window, we choose a name and a keyword for the new search engine, then click on Add. Now just click on the three dots next to the new engine added and press on the item Imposta eat predefined, so as to obtain a personalized Google search (we will only see the results in the country, on any screen).
If we use Google Chrome on Android or iOS, open the browser app, tap the menu with the three dots at the top right and go to Settings -> Search engine to change the search engine to Google.
In the Default search engine let's make sure it's indicated Google, otherwise let's select it from the drop-down menu. To search for other search engines compatible with Firefox, just visit the dedicated page.
If we have decided to use Firefox on Android and iOS, we can change the default search engine by tapping the menu with the three dots icon at the top right, taking us to the Settings -> Search path and choosing Google among all the providers present.
Let's now go to the tab Search, we find the voice Search engine and be sure to select Google from the drop-down menu, so as to restore the Google search within the browser.
From iPhone and iPad we can change the browser's default search engine by opening the app Settings, by tapping on Safari and choosing Google next to the item Search engine.
The search engine options will then open. Press on the button with three dots next to Google and then choose Set as default.
The Google search engine will also appear in the list (automatically identified by the browser); to add it all we have to do is press on it and select Imposta eat predefined.
If we use Edge as a browser on Android and iOS, open the app, press the icon with the three dots at the bottom right, go to Settings -> Advanced settings and select Google next to the item Search engine. If we do not find the Google voice immediately, we tap the button Others and select Google to correctly set the browser search engine.
If your browser keeps changing search engine without warning, even after manually changing it, there may be a "spy" add-on or malware to remove.
In this regard, we advise you to clean up browser viruses by reading our guide on how remove viruses from Chrome and Firefox when slow or with too much advertising.
If the problem is caused by a virus hidden inside Windows and we want to restore the browser to its initial settings, we recommend that you read our two guides on how clean the PC infected with malware by deleting all traces e ripristinare i Browser Chrome, Firefox, Edge.
