Search in Google Chrome
Edited by Djinu, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you several different ways we can search using the Google Chrome web browser.
The home screen of Google Chrome shows us eight most popular places that we visit.
We can easily type in a search just by typing.
This will put the search query into the address bar. The search bar will offer other searches to your query.
We can press the enter key.
In this example, Google Chrome will show search results for a Google search for "widgets".
That we may not know is that we can search other search engines using the address bar.
Type "Yahoo.com" and press the space key.
Then, let's type "widgets".
This will yield the search for "widgets" on Yahoo.com.
That is the same as typing "Yahoo.com" and then typing in the search bar on the site.
Let's type "widgets".
There is a quick and efficient way of doing searches.
We right-click on the address bar.
We can click "Edit Search Engines..."
We can make Yahoo!
the default search engine for anything we type in the address bar by clicking "Make default". Let's click "Make default".
Now, if we type "widgets" in the search bar, we won't need to type "Yahoo.com" and press the space key anymore.
We will get search results for "widgets" on Yahoo!
Also, what we may not know is that whenever we visit a web site and search for something, Google Chrome keeps track of that and makes it easy for us to search for it within the address bar.
For example, typing "amazon.com" and pressing the space key right now does not give us the option to search within Amazon.
First, we have to go to amazon.com.
Then, we have to enter "widgets" in the search box of Amazon.
We go back to the home screen by closing the last tab.
We'll see what when we type "amazon.com" and press the space key, we have the option to search within the web site.
We will be able to pull up the widget search page on Amazon again.
We right-click the address bar.
We click "Edit Search Engines..." We'll see all of the web sites within which we searched.
We can easily search within all of those web sites.
One of the sites that does not automatically come up on the "Edit Search Engines" list is Facebook.
We try to search for a name.
We type the name.
It is important now to click the search button, which is the last in the pop-up list.
We type "Facebook.com" press the space key and enter the search term.
We'll see that the address bar has not enabled the search text to the left. This is not going to yield the Facebook search result.
What we can do is we can add Facebook manually by right-clicking the address bar.
We click "Edit Search Engines..." Facebook is not something that adds automatically into Google Chrome like other searches.
We scroll down to the very bottom of the search engines list.
At the very bottom, we can enter the address of the search engine, the keyword, as well as the URL with the "%s" in place of query.
We'll switch to the Facebook tab where we searched for the name.
We'll replace the search term with "%s".
In this case, we mark "Michael%20Kobelashvili" and type "%s".
Now, we highlight the whole line in the address bar and press "command" and "C" (Mac) or "Ctrl" and "C" (PC).
Now, we switch to the "Settings - Search engines" tab.
We enter the information for the site.
We type "Facebook.com" in the "Add a new search engine" box.
In this video, we can make a keyword for Facebook.com and type "Facebook" in the "Keyword" box.
We click "URL with %s in place of query" and press "command" and "V" (Mac) or "Ctrl" and "V" (PC).
This will paste the URL.
Now, when we type the letters "Facebook" and press the space key, Google Chrome will enable Facebook search.
We can type in a name to search.
Google Chrome will open Facebook and return the search results from Facebook.
That's been a quick tutorial on how to use Google Chrome to search for other web sites as well as Google. Please leave any questions or comments in the space below. Thanks again for watching!
