Question Google Acceletrator


When I use the google accelerator to search, its uses google.com. How can I change this so it will search using google.co.uk?

As I understand it, Google accelerator uses whatever search engine you have set as the default in Internet Explorer settings (and probably set google.com as the default when you installed it).

I use IE8 and in it, click on Tools>Manager Add ons. In the window that opens, in the left-hand pane click on Search Providers. Then a link will appear at the bottom of that window, "Find more search providers."

That opens a web page with various search providers listed. Scroll to the bottom and click on "Create your own search provider." In the page that opens, just follow the instructions to set Google UK as the default

See if that does the trick.
