    Re: Changing default search engine on Internet Explorer 7

    You should first open the Internet Explorer and click on the ‘Tools’ option located at the top of the screen. You should click on ‘Internet options’ afterwards to view ‘Internet options’ dialog box. By clicking on the ‘General’ tab, you can view ‘Change search defaults’ option along with ‘Settings’ button. You should first click on that button and then on ‘find more providers’ option at the lower part. You will be then redirected to ‘Add Search Providers to Internet Explorer 7’ page where you can add Google by specifying URL and name. On clicking ‘Install’ button, you will be asked for confirmation to add Google to Internet Explorer 7. You should then click on the ‘Add Provider’ button available. Then, you should again click on the ‘Settings’ button near ‘Change search defaults’ option so that you can view ‘Google’ in the given list. After that, you should select the ‘Google’ option and click on the ‘Set as Default’ button to set it as default search engine.
