Right-Click Functionality.

Another way to search the Internet for text appearing on the current page you're viewing is to highlight that text, right-click your mouse and select "Google Search" from the pop-up menu.


When I highlight a word and right click it goes to "search Yahoo for", but I don't want to search
in Yahoo I want to highlight a word and search in Google.

I don't have a search in Google in the pop up menu.
I used to.
Messing around with my computer and now it gone.

How do I change this?
I used to know I to do it but I forgot how.

Thank you in advance!!! :thumbsup:

Hi Nikki,

In Firefox, the right click/search engine will be the same as the search engine you are currently using in the Search Bar to the right of the Address Bar.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Hello TMack,

Umm I don't follow.
When I highlight a word I want to search for it in Google, not type in the word in the
search bar every time I want to search.

Can you link me to a site that shows what your talking about?

Let me rephrase this,

If you currently have your Search Bar set on Google, when you use the right click/search function, you should get Google on the drop down menu. If you have Yahoo in the Search Bar, that's what will show up in the drop down menu when you use the right click search function.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.

OK, how do I change my settings in my Search Bar to Google instead of Yahoo?

Inside the Searchbar, next to the Yahoo icon, you should see a little dropdown arrow.
Click it, and select the search engine you want to use.
