Any way to get rid of Yahoo in Comodo dragon browser

I like this browser but hate the MSN look with Yahoo and all the links, changing to google as default always brings me back to the Yahoo start page

Thank you, i usually use chrome but need the extra security of Dragon.

Here you go. Comodo Dragon - Setting Up Your Homepage | Web Browser & Internet Solutions

When you get to this window Name:  Capture.JPG
Views: 5
Size:  17.4 KB put your curser on the yahoo that is listed, it will blue out the writing and you will see an X at the end of it, click on the X and then type google.com as your search provider. Worked and works for me.

Doesn't the default Programs and Features tool fix it?

If not, try out the free CCleaner and on the Uninstall section, uninstall Comodo Dragon.

He means to change the homepage, not delete the browser.

Herbc,

If you are using Comodo Dragon for it's security, you might also want to switch from Google to using a search engine like DuckDuckGo or StartPage.

The first one finds results which Google doesn't, and the latter one is just like Google, only without the tracking cookies, recording of search data, IP tracking and governmental surveillance (sources; here and here).

If you want to continue using Google, BrightBlessings' fix will solve your issue.


Good luck and keep us posted,
Nommy
