Windows 7: Can't find Google search provider for IE9

Can't find Google search provider for IE9

Hi,

I'm trying to use Google as the default search provider for IE9. I know I used to be able to do this but they have changed the website where you select them and Google is no longer listed.

The website I checked was: Internet Explorer Gallery

Does anyone know where I can download the Google search provider for Internet Explorer 9?

Thanks in advance,
Caleb

Hello Caleb,

You should be able to type in Google in the search box, and press Enter to see it afterwards like below.

Thanks for your help!

I thought it was a bit strange that Google wasn't listed. It doesn't appear to be listed under 'Search' in the add ons gallery though. It's clearly there if you search for it though as you stated.

You're most welcome. Yeah, I'm not sure why they don't have it listed without having to search for it.
