My operational system is Windows 11 and my chosen browser is Chrome and my computer is set up to start with the Google home page. Despite this, every time I sign in I am met with BING. I feel as if my personal computer has been hijacked by Microsoft because there appears to be no way to get rid of Bing despite the fact that Google Chrome is set as my default browser. Has anyone got an answer to this invasion of personal choice and privacy?

    1. Open Chrome and click on the three dots in the top-right corner.
    2. Select "Settings" from the drop-down menu.
    3. Scroll down to the "Search engine" section and click on "Manage search engines."
    4. Find Google in the list of search engines and click on the three dots to the right of it.
    5. Select "Make default."

    If Google is already set as the default search engine, try changing your default search engine in your Windows settings:

    1. Click on the Windows Start button and select "Settings."
    2. Select "Apps" from the menu.
    3. Click on "Default apps" on the left-hand side.
    4. Scroll down to the "Web browser" section and click on your preferred browser (e.g. Chrome).
    5. Restart your computer and see if the issue has been resolved.

    If neither of these solutions work, you can try resetting your browser settings to default:

    1. Open Chrome and click on the three dots in the top-right corner.
    2. Select "Settings" from the drop-down menu.
    3. Scroll down to the bottom and click on "Advanced."
    4. Click on "Reset settings" under the "Reset and clean up" section.
    5. Restart Chrome and see if the issue has been resolved.
