Windows 7: Can I get Google on IE9?

Can I get Google on IE9?

Just upgraded to IE9 and it seems MS has either done away with other search engines or it is not obvious to me. I happen to like Google over Bing.

thanks for the link to the tutorial. I feel like I am half way there. I added Google and the only way it works is to check "search in address bar". If you leave it unchecked, then there is no way to use Google and Bing is still front and center.

Go back to Manage Attachments.
Highlight one to remove or disable.
Click the remove or disable button for ones you don't want to use.
I clicked remove for everything but Google.
Bing and Windows Live I think it was are lousy. IMO.
Yes you want to check mark Search in Address bar for Google to work properly.

Hope that helps.
