Bing seriously does my head in, a terrible search engine.

 

I like the concept / idea of being able to search from the taskbar but I want to change the default search engine used by the search box from bing o google without changing my browser or installing another app or extension. I don't want to use google chrome and its bing2google extension.

 

There has to be a way to force Win10, Cortana and the search box to use another search engine of your own choice.

 

Changing the default search engine of IE & Edge is easy enough to do.

 

It would be great if Google could develop an app to change the search engines used by Win10's search box, IE & Edge in one click. It would be a lot quicker and less tiresome than doing it all manually.

There is an extension for Google Chrome that redirects Cortana redirects to Google
