Search providers In Modern UI Version Of IE 10

Internet Explorer 10 comes in two different versions: the minimalist Modern UI/Metro version accessed from the Start screen and the traditional, full-featured Desktop version accessed from the Taskbar.

The Desktop version and the Modern UI/Metro version of IE10 share the default search provider. Change your default and manage your search providers by clicking the gear button in the upper, right corner of the IE10 window (Desktop version) and selecting Manage add-ons from the drop-down menu.

(1) Click Search Providers in the Add-on Types list on the left side of the Manage Add-ons dialog box. To change the default search provider, select the desired provider in the list and click Set as default. You can also enable search suggestions for any search provider by selecting the provider and clicking the Enable suggestions link. Move search providers up and down in the list, or sort them alphabetically, using the Listing order links. Use the Remove button to remove any selected search provider.

(2) To be able to search using the Address bar, select the Search in the address bar check box so there is a check mark in the box.

When you type a word or phrase in the Address bar and press Enter or click the Go button, IE10 opens search results from the default search provider in the currently active tab.
