Change search provider to uk?
Since reinstalling Win XP I have lost the ability in IE8 to search from the
top right 'search' area with 'Google.co.uk'. It will only allow 'Google.com'.



I have tried to add it via:

"Tools" > "Internet Options" > "General"

"Settings" > "Search" > "Find more search providers". But that doesn't work.



One use to be able to "Add a search provider" but that option seems to have
disappeared

(It's still in the help file!) The only option now seems to be, "Find more.
...."in which case 'Google.co.uk' does not appear only 'Google.com'.

(It's in 'accelerators' but that doesn't help)

There seems to be no way any longer of entering a search provider manually
(?)

It is a pain having to change the '.com' to '.co.uk' all the time.

I know I could use the Google tool bar but I would rather save the real
estate.



Can anyone offer any advice?



TIA

Slatts

Sorry, you can go to any page to click on, Create your own Search Provider,
you will have to scroll down to see it.
