Microsoft Edge is the most popular web browser out there after Google Chrome. Based on Chromium, the Edge browser is available for all major operating systems, including Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, and Android.
By default, the Bing search engine is the default in Edge. Well, as you likely know, both Edge and Bing are developed by Microsoft. So, it is obvious for a company to set its search engine as the default in its web browser.
For users who prefer other search engines like Google or DuckDuckGo, Edge offers an option to set any other search engine as the default search engine. Many users use this option to set a search engine other than Bing as the default.
After using other search engines for a while, some users like to make Bing the default search engine again. If you also want to make Bing the default search engine in Edge, here is how to do it.
