Need to change Google Bar in Speed Dial to Bing

  • The search engine in "Speed Dial" (an odd name for a click), is a Google search.

    In Settings:
    I changed 'On Startup to' "Open a specific page or set of pages" to bing.com. When I click any "Go to Start Page", it takes me to the Speed Dial page, not assigned bing.com page, and shows Google box, not Bing.

    I changed "Search" to 'Bing' as well.

    When I open Speed Dial, it shows Google box. Is there a way out from Google box and switch it to Bing Box?

    Using the default Theme "Landscape Photo by Tyssul Patel". I'd add a pic, but don't see how.

    Hi leocg and thanks for the response.

    Too much information! :)

    Does this mean I need to disable "Speed Dial" altogether? I have the Startup page set to Bing, but on Startup, it loads that as first, then defaults to Google Speed Dial. Is Speed Dial part of a Google service?

    Sorry - no time to learn new "Markdown" (HTML) Hope the reply to you formats properly.

    p.s. Is there a Go-fund for Opera to buy in to updated Forum software?

    You can just hide the search box. There is a setting for it in Start Page settings (you need to enable advanced settings to see that one).

    I have the Startup page set to Bing, but on Startup, it loads that as first, then defaults to Google Speed Dial.

    When you set a start-up page, Opera opens that page when started, together with Start Page/Speed Dial.

    Nope.

    You could have used the quote button if this is what you talking about.

    Nope. And their forum software is updated, it just works in a different way. :-)
