When using Explorer, I like typing in the address bar and then hit enter. My computer defaults to MSN. How do I change this to google? I do not want to install the google address bar. I am using Explorer 6 & 7.

For IE 6 take a look at this link: http://www.google.com/options/defaults.html under the heading of 'Make Google Your Default Search Engine'

I'm still looking regarding IE 7

Edit: Found one for IE 7 also: http://www.askdavetaylor.com/change_the_de...orer_7_ie7.html

Dont interested in making google my default page. I just want to be able to type in the address bar and use google as my default. Does your computer default to google or MSN when you type in the address bar?

Neither one of my links was for changing your home page to google. They were links for changing the default search engine that the browser uses. Exactly what you requested in your original post.

As for my main browser I use Opera and I have 5 search engines to choose from. I do not use IE unless testing, or forced to, by certain webpages that do not render properly in any other browser.

Edit: To answer the question regarding which search engine my browser uses.
