default search engine
How do I change the default search engine in the Address Bar. It currently
uses Yahoo and I would prefer to use Goolge.

I've been given these instructions but when I open the search companion side
bar 'Change Preferences' is not there. How else can I get there?

1. Click on the "Search" Button
2. When the Search Companion side bar opens, click on "Change Preferences"
3. Now click on "Change Intenet Search Behavior"
4. Select "Google" from the list of search providers and OK your way out.
