Unable to change the Locked Default search Engine URL in Google Chrome
  

I did the below steps:
  • Click the wrench symbol on the program toolbar.
  • Select Options.
  • Click the Basics tab.
  • Click Manage in the "Default venture" area.
Then after that join the Url or site page that you desire to utilize as your web index tool by giving name, decisive word and url!
I for the most part recognize the URL Line greyed out or bolted out, so any keys how to dispose of the aforementioned?

Re: Unable to change the Locked Default search Engine URL in Google Chrome

I hold the best equipped fix for it. Now Most users know this and the thing which they make a point not to is They chiefly identify the URL Line greyed out or bolted out , So here are the strides for that :-

  • In the Name box Enter "Google-english"
  • In the keyword box, enter "en"
  • In the URL box Copy and paste this: http://www.google.com/search?{google:RLZ}{google:acceptedSuggestion}{google:originalQueryForSuggestion}sourceid=chrome&ie= {inputEncoding}&q=%s

when that the URL Line won't be greyed out Anymore and a Green check stamp could show up additionally the URL Box!
  • Then basically click alright
  • Then again Highlight Google-English in the catalogue and click make Default catch.
  • Click Close and you are finished!

The situation is not with the web based info search. Chrome redirects users as per usual and it appears inconceivable to avert it from doing so. I'm in France, so the surmise Chrome makes is that I feel the need to run over to google.fr or yahoo.fr, paying little mind to what I sort in the url box. It's only resulting from the fact that I'm in a given nation doesn't mean that I desire to interface to weak neighborhood web spaces. Let the users choose.

Re: Unable to change the Locked Default search Engine URL in Google Chrome

I have got some tricks for you:
  1. Set your default online searching tool
  2. Click the wrench symbol on the program toolbar.
  3. Select Options (Preferences on Mac and Linux; Settings on a Chromebook).
  4. Click the Basics tab and identify the "Search" area.
  5. Select the web based info search you have a desire to utilize from the menu. Since the web indexer you have a desire to utilize doesn't show up in the menu, click Manage search applications.
  6. In the Search Engines dialog that shows up, select the web based info search that you'd such as to utilize from the catalogue.
  7. Click the Make Default bind that shows up in the column.
