Search engine shortcuts

Post by darko999 » Mon Jun 09, 2014 6:11 am

I was wondering why I am unable to delete these "default" search engines. You can not even edit their shortcuts.
For example, I want to use the "y" for youtube search, its asigned by default to yahoo. Annoying.
Any ideas about the reasons for this to be this way??

You don't need to delete the Default Search Engines. Go to Tools--> A B Options --> Search Engine --> Other Search Tab --> Add Then fill in the details for the Search Engine you want to use.

...but, to be clear, the OP is correct. The default search engine shortcuts can not be changed. g, af, and y can not be used for any other custom search string.

I can make a request for you, but I'm not sure whether or when will it be implemented.
