    Bing in new tab


    Hello,
    I have a backlog of updates because I updated previously and got bing on my frequent sites page when opening new tab. I got rid of this but now need to install other updates. Can anyone tell me which updates control this feature so that I can avoid them and proceed with all other updates please?

    Thanks for your reply. I would have to let it reinstall itself to send an image and that is what I am trying to avoid. What happened was I updated and when I opened a new tab showing frequently visited sites I had the Bing search feature installed. If I can find which update caused this I can install all the updates except these.

    Is this using Edge under Windows 10? You can change the search engine for all browsers that I'm aware of, just need to know which one you are using.

    Or it could be this: Add or Remove Bing Search Bar from Internet Explorer New tab page

    Hello Ztruker,
    That appears to be the very thing I am talking about. I'll try it later and let you know what happens. Many thanks. JD

    Hello Ztruker,

    I installed all my outstanding updates and the previous issue did not arise. I can only assume Microsoft had so many complaints about this that they stopped insisting on it. Once again many thanks for your assistance.
