Hello, thank you for using Howly.
Do you mean that you want to see google results instead of Bing results when you are trying to find something in the web, *****?

Will be grateful for help with my new Acer notebook. Yes I want Chrome to be my default browser and get rid of Bing as it won't function properly

Got it! It's possible that you need to set up Google Chrome as your default browser and possibly change your start page to "Google" instead of Bing.
To set Google as your default search engine:
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 Down arrow.
5. Select a new default search engine - Google.

Great work! Try to close Google Chrome completely and re-open it again.
Bing shouldn't show up anymore.
