Why is Chrome defaulting to Yahoo when I do a search?
As of yesterday, whenever I do a search in Chrome, the results default to Yahoo. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?
It looks like your default settings have gotten changed somehow. Open a separate screen with these directions, so you can pop back and forth to check these. With your browser open, go to the top right corner of your screen and click the three dots. A screen will pop down with several choices. Find the settings one and click on it. Be careful now, but go down to Search, and it is where you check to see if it is changed. Click the side marked Manage Search Engines. Look at it and see who your Default Search Engine is. If it is not the one you want, you will know you need to reset it. Hover over the one you want and a shadowy 'Default' will show up. Click that default button and it should reset it.
Becky, you're a genius! Thank you so much. It worked!
Happy to help. My son had to teach me that one about 6 years ago. Something that I downloaded had switched it for me. A lot of downloads will switch them and they usually ask. We are not really paying attention and give it permission. Other times, th
Because Yahoo, like the Blob, takes over everything it touches. It automatically resets your home page without your permission and resets whatever else it wishes. I learned this the hard way at my job. My job calls for numerous daily searches on governmental, legal, organizational and commercial websites. Yahoo kept taking over my home page, which was on the network belonging to the state agency I work for, and I was constantly having to call IT to reset it until I learned to do it myself. I finally got disgusted with Yahoo and deleted Yahoo search and Yahoo email from my computer. I don't even read the news on Yahoo anymore but found a different news website that doesn't take over my computer. My suggestion is to reset everything and totally delete Yahoo from your computer and forget it. You can probably tell that I dislike Yahoo very much because of its intrusive capabilities.

How can you get Chrome to open icon inks to another website successfully?Chrome seems to have no easy way to troubleshoot a problem. Often you must spend time spinning your wheels for a simple answer.
