Nice to meet you, *****!
So you want to go to Google search?

Customer Replay

Yes please

*****, are you using Google Chrome and the search shows up as Yahoo instead of Google?

Yes, correct.

Got you, you can change this directly from your browser.

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More and then Settings.
  3. Click Search engine.
  4. Next to "Search engine used in the address bar," click the Down arrow.
  5. Select a new default search engine, which is Google. You can also remove the other search engines you don't want to use in the future.

I couldn`t see a down arrow but says google chrome is my default browser.

Do you see the "Search engine used in the address bar"?
Should be displayed like this:

I`ve only got search settings, not your image

When you clicked on the three vertical does at the top right, you went to Settings, right?
"Search engine" is displayed in the left menu, like this:

Got it, I`ll try & restart.
