Changing Windows 10 IE 11 Search Engine

Windows 10 is blocking us from changing IE search engine by registry. By testing futher i found out this method work well.

Please use at your own risk. This is my own code for search engine.

 

Copy and paste below as a reg file and run it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;Remove other search engine…..
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes]
