How to Add Google Search to the Tool Bar

Save

Most Internet browsers come pre-installed with a search box embedded in the tool bar. Each search box is powered by a specific search engine and displays your results on that search engine's page. The default search provider varies depending on the browser you are using, but all browsers provide the option of changing the default to Google.
