The latest version of Windows 10 allows you to search for anything by typing in the taskbar search section. The taskbar search bar allows you to find apps, files, images, and web searches that can be opened in Microsoft Edge using the Bing search engine. Just like Google, Bing is also a useful search engine that provides reliable results.

There’s nothing wrong with using the Bing search engine, but there are people who don’t prefer to use and wish to use other search engines like DuckDuckGo, Yahoo and Google. Every search engine has its features and privacy features. The biggest issue with Bing search engine is that it is highly integrated into Windows 10, and if you’re new at using Windows 10, then you won’t be able to switch to another search engine. If you’re using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, you can use extensions to use any search engine directly.
