    Can I replace Bing with Google search on the IE app?


    I would like to replace Bing search and use Google search when I open the IE app in Windows 8.1. Is this possible?

    This is my current home page on internet explorer (see the Bing search bar). What I want, is to keep it, but have a Google search bar instead of the Bing search bar. Is this possible?

    BTW, I added Google in "Manage Add-ons" and deleted Bing, but I still get the screen shown in the link at the top of my post.

    If this is what you are talking about, you cannot change that Bing bar, it is programmed into their site:
