Windows 7: Opening new tab in Chrome problem

Opening new tab in Chrome problem

I use Chrome. I have my opening page set to Bing and Chrome shows that site when I first open it. However, when I try to open a second tab (a new tab) Chrome opens it at Google. Is there a way of making Chrome open all new tabs also in Bing?

Thanks in advance.

Go to the Chrome settings page.
Go down to Search and using the pull down menu, select Bing.

Yes, I have witnessed this issue in Opera too.

If I set settings>search engine to Bing, then put a search term into the search box, I get the results from Google.

If I go back to settings>search engine I can see it still says Bing. No explanation. The Bing "Related Searches" also vanished from search results.

If I temporarily change the search Engine to Yahoo or DuckDuckGo (in Opera) then also I still get results from Google. Don't know why.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
