How to Change Bing to Google? for Google Chrome

Bing is a search engine developed by Microsoft. Yahoo has also been part of Bing since 2011. Both share the same search results. However, more and more people want to replace Bing with Google. This is because Google shows better search results based on the searches performed by the user.

Websites administrators also set up their websites for Google which also provides more relevant search results. Whatever the reason, if you wish to change Bing to Google, read about it in this article.

You may have Bing set up in the browser yourself, and you wish to change the browser search engine back to Google.
