How do I add Wikipedia and Google in the search bar in Microsoft Internet Explorer 9?

Where in the settings do I add such custom search engines?

In IE9 the link has changed to 'Find more search providers'

However this link will help you ... It contains both google and wikipedia.

UPDATE: Here is the new link for google.

Thank you ! This link works but this one does not : iegallery.com/fr/addons/?feature=searchproviders. There is a big problem because IE9 sent me to the last one ! –  Peter Jun 2 '11 at 15:17
    
And how to switch between the different search engines ? –  Peter Jun 2 '11 at 15:28
    
The link you provided works fine for me. –  edusysadmin Jun 3 '11 at 14:04
    
Link no longer working. –  Wilhelm Jan 4 '12 at 14:23

When you type in your search term in the address bar there should be an option at the bottom of the drop down that appears to add more search engines.

I have no such thing :-( –  Peter Jun 2 '11 at 15:10
    
Sorry, just going by memory since the machine I'm on doesn't have IE9. –  pthesis Jun 2 '11 at 15:12
    
It used to be the case on IE8. –  Peter Jun 2 '11 at 15:14

Either manage add-ons\search providers\ or internet options\settings (under the search line, on the general tab)

Thanks. Tools -> Manage Add-ons -> Search providers. But this page does not work : iegallery.com/fr/addons/?feature=searchproviders –  Peter Jun 2 '11 at 15:14
    
See my answer above. Like i said that link doesn't work. –  steve Jun 2 '11 at 15:16
    
This is very confusing because IE9 sent me to this link. I hope Microsoft is aware of this problem. –  Peter Jun 2 '11 at 15:22
