    Windows 8.1


    I use Bing & Google also, I have them on my favourites bar

    I just don't like these fake search boxes which are appearing on new tab pages that all they do is direct you straight to the address bar to search, just seems pointless to me, might as well search from the address bar initially, and I had to get rid of it

    I am confused, i see no update that made changes to IE11, Bing was always the default search provider for IE11 unless you added it like you did with Google. Before i mentioned one time way back i thought i used to see an optional update for Bing Bar. No more though.
    True sometimes it's there sometimes it isn't. bing search bar at top of the browser page is all i notice.

    Hey just another reason why i use Mozilla Firefox able to change search engines with ease, like the performance better.

    Nothing to be confused about. Some of us had Google search as default with Bing disabled. MS chose to reverse it without our knowledge. Not nice

    So it gets reversed automatically on a update. hmm...
    Like said, i rather use Mozilla even though IE 11 is set as default browser for desktop links. IE11 is fast, just prefer Firefox.
