Change your default search engine..

Search from the Address Bar in Internet Explorer (All Windows)

Save time with this tweak that allows you to specify the search engine to query by typing a request directly into the Internet Explorer address bar.
Once you have defined the search engines you can then search by typing the shortcut name followed by the keywords. For example you could search Google for "regedit"
with the command "google regedit".
Open you registry and find the key below.
For each search engine you wish to add follow these steps:
Create a new sub key and name it after the shortcut you'd like to type in the address bar to access the engine. For example; "google" to access Google or "yahoo" to access Yahoo!
Open the new sub key and set the value of (Default) to equal the search engine query URL, inserting "%s" in place of the keywords. For example:
Google =
Yahoo =
AltaVista =
Restart Internet Explorer for the changes to take effect.
