About changing default search providers

Based on your choice of settings during the installation of Bing Bar, your default search engine on both Firefox and Windows Internet Explorer is either switched to Bing or left at its previous setting. If you choose to change your default search engine to Bing, then all searches carried out either from your address bar or the search box of your web browser are directed to Bing. We take these steps to help ensure that your choice of default search engine is enacted.

  • To change your default search provider, see the Help for your web browser.

  • If you don't see some or all of the features described in this topic, you might have an older version of Bing Bar. To install the latest version of Bing Bar with all the newest features, go to Bing Bar Download.
