1. Open Google Chrome.

2. Click the wrench icon in the upper-right corner of the toolbar and select Options.

3. On the Basics tab, go down to the Default search area and use the dropdown to select the desired search engine. If the desired search engine isn’t listed, click the Manage button to add the new search engine.

4. Click the Close button.
