On the desktop, open Internet Explorer by clicking the Internet Explorer icon on your taskbar. Select the Search Providers category in the Manage Add-ons window and click the Find more search providers link at the bottom of the window. Click the Add to Internet Explorer button on the page. When the Add Search Provider window appears, click the Make this my default search provider checkbox and click Add.

Google (or the search engine you chose) will now be your default search engine in both versions of Internet Explorer 10 – the “Metro” version and the desktop version.

Click the gear menu at the top-right corner of the Internet Explorer window and select Manage add-ons. If the Modern version of Internet Explorer 10 isn’t using your new default search engine, open it, grab the top of the window with your mouse, then drag and drop it to the bottom of your screen.
