The Home Page is the website that loads whenever you open Internet Explorer and can be changed to anything you want. This article will show you how to change Home Page and default Search Engine in Internet Explorer. Depending on which web browser you are using, it is either difficult or relatively easy to switch search providers.
Microsoft's Internet Explorer 11, only available for Windows 8 and Windows 7, belongs to the second category. Update: Internet Explorer 11 is also shipped with Microsoft's new operating system Windows 10, but it is not the system's default browser. Microsoft's own search engine Bing is the default search engine of the browser, and while there is nothing wrong with that -- Google does the same thing -- the lack of any third party alternative may keep some users puzzled in regards to switching to another search provider.
Before we look at that, it may be of interest to highlight how you can access the list of installed search providers, as there is no real hint in the browser as to how this is done. Click on the settings icon in the top right corner of the Internet Explorer 11 screen and select Manage Add-ons from the context menu.
This opens the browser's add-ons manager that lists installed toolbars and extensions, accelerators, and other extensions.
If you are running a stock version of Internet Explorer 11, you will only find Bing listed here and no other search engine.
To install new search providers in Internet Explorer 11, visit the Internet Explorer Gallery and download one or multiple of the search providers listed here.
You find popular search engines such as Google, Yahoo!, Startpage, DuckDuckGo or Yandex listed here. Make this my default search provider - This will make the search engine the default Internet Explorer search engine if checked.
Use search suggestions from this provider - When enabled, will query the provider for suggestions and display them in the browser (may not be available for all search engines). You need to close and re-open the Add-ons Manager before search engines that you have installed this way show up here. Here you also find out if the search suggestions and top result search features are enabled. The method described above works in Internet Explorer 11 on all supported operating systems.

IEGallery doesn't show any search engines I use; no startpage, no ixquick, no duckduckgo, ONLY google.

To add Startpage to Internet Explorer, visit Startpage and click on the Add to IE link underneath the form.
Microsoft used to allow you to create your own Search Provider on their website, which was extremely useful until they stupidly decided to remove it (rendering the feature pretty limited really). However, EnhanceIE came to the rescue by still allowing people to create their own Search Providers.
You basically search on the website you want to use as a Search Provider, using TEST as a search term and then copy & paste the URL into the box to create your own Search Provider.
That way you're not limited to just using the narrow selection of Search Providers shown on the Microsoft site.
As you will soon discover (with GOOGLE), this method fails a lot of the time due to the fact you simply cant find the Google search provider anywhere in the IE Gallery. There are several ways to change the font size of the displayed web page text in Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox web browsers. Changing font sizes in both Internet Explorer and Firefox using the scroll wheel on the mouse is definitely quick and easy, especially when you don't want or don't like to tinker around with browser menu options or keyboard shortcuts. By the way, Internet Explorer 6.xx (under Windows) has an issue with web sites on which the font sizes have been set with the px unit of measurement. Another way to change font sizes of text on web pages in Internet Explorer and Firefox is through the View menu.
From the View menu, choose Text Size and then select whether you want to increase or decrease the font size. The keyboard shortcuts for changing the font size of text on web pages in Firefox are much simpler than Internet Explorer.

Some web browsers ship with a selection of preinstalled providers that you can select one from, while others don't. You can change that by selecting another provider in the list and the "set as default" button. He is passionate about all things tech and knows the Internet and computers like the back of his hand.
I was trying to add google but the IE11 help and the MS website only shows help for older versions of IE, with the option in the menu, before the search engine add-on idea.
I have done "Manage Add-Ons", searched for and found Google, clicked on "Add to IE" and nothing happens.

I have tested it on a Windows 10 system and IE11, and was able to add other search providers using it.
It has since then become one of the most popular tech news sites on the Internet with five authors and regular contributions from freelance writers. Now, move the scroll wheel and see what happens - scrolling the wheel away from your hand will decrease the font size while if you scroll it towards your hand, the font size will increase. Internet Explorer will let you resize the fonts to 5 sizes - Largest, Larger, Medium (the default), Smaller and Smallest.
You can now change the text to one of the five sizes - Largest, Larger, Medium, Smaller and Smallest.
Keeping the CONTROL key pressed, click on the "+" key to increase the font size and "-" key to decrease the font size.

If the Internet Explorer app on the start screen does not use the default search provider right away, restart the computer or the app to apply the change.
Then be sure you've checked "Set Google as default search in Internet Explorer and notify me of changes". Firefox, however, has a wider range and lets you decrease the font size till it becomes illegible or enlarges it so much that you see only one word on the screen (I've done this). I don't think this is a bug because the very idea of putting text in px units is not to let visitors change the font sizes.
I know I couldn't resist the temptation myself, but don't play around much with this feature else you can get a splitting headache.

Since Firefox allows you to change text sizes across a wider range than Internet Explorer, I suggest you use the keyboard shortcuts on this browser. After restart you'll be asked if you want to enable toolbar - you can leave toolbar disabled.
