IE9 enable searching from address bar

internet explorerinternet-explorer-9

In IE9 there is no search box part of the toolbar anymore to search without going to a search page. I want to be able to search via the address bar.

When I was in IE8, I disabled searching via the address bar. This setting has transfered to my IE9. However, now I can't find the option to enable search via address bar in IE9. How do I enable it?

Best Answer

Searches are completed via the address bar (its a combo address/search bar), anything typed will use youre default search provider which can be changed via the Tools menu option 'Manage Add-Ons' under the heading 'Search Providers'.

If the combo search function is not working, from the 'Manage Add-Ons' window heading 'Search Providers' verify the check box 'Search in the address bar' is checked.
