Windows - How to remove the bing search engine?

in #steemrepo4 years ago

For many years, Microsoft has been trying to set its software as default on the Windows PC. My thought go to software like Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge, completely inserted into the operating system kernel.

Although Microsoft's browsers are completely bad, the worst system added by default on the Operating System is the BING SEARCH ENGINE.

What is a Search Engine?

We all know the Google giant Search Engine. When i was young Google was on par with Yahoo (become an old system now forgotten) and it was certainly not the best search engine of all time. But when he decided to introduce that mechanism to facilitate web pages search, he became the first global search engine.

In the field of Internet tecnologies, a search engine is an automatic system that analyzes a set of information returning a search classification ( based on algorithms).
