Change Cortana's Search Engine in Windows 10

There’s no denying that Google Chrome & Mozilla’s firefox is better than the bing search engine. Because both of these crawlers deliver you appropriate results in no time. That’s why most of the Windows 10 users prefer using these two search engines to get the job done.

However, the Cortana search is one of the best facilities provided to Windows OS users. But sometimes a user gets frustrated by its default search engine i.e; Bing. So here, I’ve decided to help my readers Change Cortana’s Search Engine in Windows 10. I’ll tell you about changing your default search engine to Google or Firefox.


How Can I Change Cortana’s Search Engine in Windows 10?

Using an extension

If you are a Google Chrome user and prefer to stick with Google search, then here’s what you need to do. You can get a simple extension named Chrometana from the Chrome store. And after you’ve installed the extension, it’ll be added into your browser’s taskbar.

Now every time you’ll make a search from the Cortana search, it’ll redirect your connection from Bing to Google, Yahoo, or DuckDuckGo search. But it’ll only work if you are using the Chrome web browser.

Changing default web browsers

If you want to launch firefox, whenever you make an online search using Cortana, then you only need to change your default web browser. And if you have installed Firefox on your computer, but still not getting this facility, then you should update your browser to the latest version.

Same implies to similar web browsers like Tor. It’s private, so many users would prefer using it as well. So to use this browser’s search, you have to install it on your computer and set it as a default web browser. You can perform this task by navigating to Settings->Apps->Default Apps->Web browser.
