Set Google as Default Search Engine for Microsoft Edge using Intune

Using an Intune Settings Catalog we can change Microsoft Edge’s default search engine from Bing! to Google Chrome.

  1. Navigate to the Intune admin portal at intune.microsoft.com
  2. On the left pane, click Devices
  3. In the Devices Overview page, click Configuration Profiles found under the Policy
  4. Click + Create Profile
  5. Under Platform, select Windows 10 and later. And under Profile Type, select Settings catalog
  6. Give your new policy a proper name and description and then click Next
  7. In the Settings Catalog search for Microsoft Edge and then select Microsoft Edge\Default search provider
  8. Select the following four (4) settings:
    1. Configure the new tab page search box experience
    2. Default search provider name
    3. Default search provider url
    4. Enable the default search provider
  9. Enable the four new settings and configure the following
    1. Default Search provider search URL: https://www.google.com/search?q={searchTerms}
    2. Default search provider name: Google
    3. New tab page search box experience: Address bar
  10. On the next page configure any Scope tags if applicable. When finished, click Next.
  11. Under the Assignments tab, specify where this policy will be applied to. In my example I applied it to a Security Group that contains my Base Intune Configuration.
  12. On the Review page, review your policy. If there are no issues then press Create.
  13. Next, I see that my policy successfully applied to my group
  14. On my test machine, I can now search for something in the address bar and Google will be the search provider instead of Bing!
