How to add a new search provider

  1. In the IE9 search-box click the down-arrow and then click Add.

  2. Now you will be redirected to the new Internet Explorer Gallery Add-ons page. From the drop-down list in the right-bottom corner of the window select Search Providers (like indicated on the image below).

  3. Look for the provider that you are interested, click it and in the next page click Click to install.

  4. Next the Add Search Provider option-box will appear, choose whether or not you would like to have search suggestions as you type a term turned on and if you want to make this search provider your new permanent default, then click Add to finish.

How to change or set as default a search provider

To change or switch between the current Internet Explorer 9 search provider, click the down-arrow in the search-box and click one of the providers that are available to you and perform your search.

Note that like I said before Internet Explorer will keep the new provider as default until you choose another provider or until the IE9 is closed. To make a search provider your permanent default, try the following two ways: While adding a new search provider in the option-box choose the option Make this my default search provider or if you already have installed the search provider do the following:

  1. Click on Tools and select Manage add-ons.

  2. Now from the left menu click Search Providers, then select the provider you want to make the new default and click the button Set as default.

  3. Finally click Close to finish setting the default Internet Explorer 9 search provider. I hope this tutorial has been helpful for you.
