Fix to force Google Chrome to use as default search (via: I cannot get Chrome to use as the default search engine rather than – Google Chrome Help)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/06/22

Every couple of Google Chrome versions it starts using the local Google search domain (the one that Google things that geographically matches you, probably in a language you do not understand).

I have the “Use in English” cookies set, the right Chrome language settings, the right Google language settings, etc.

This is not the “right” solution, but it works, thanks Dwight Stegall:

  1. Right click the address bar and click on Edit search engines. When the box opens click the Google option in the list. Then click the X to the right to delete it.
  2. At the bottom look for a box with “Add new search engine”. Type in Google and in the next box type in a keyword. I use “g” for Google.
  3. Where it asks for URL paste this in.

You can use a similar solution for instance to force as your default search domain.
