    I usually just use but if I want to concentrate on local searches I use (as I live in South Africa)

    I use Chrome and the default search is

    3 bars > Settings > Show advanced settings > Language and input settings... > Add languages to the list. You will need English (United Kingdom) > drag this to the top > Click on "Display Google Chrome in this language", and "Use this language for spell checking" > Finished. Relaunch Chrome.

    If you still find it comes up with then go to Windows Control Panel > Language > set for English (United Kingdom) also bottom left of that Set location to United Kingdom.

    It is probably this latter point that does it, I seem to be stuck on as you require.

    Despite still being listed in the search engines for Chrome mine always comes up with from the Omnibox(address bar). Also at bottom right of the (bookmarked page) search page is "use" as an option.
