I usually set the search results for Google to 100; 10 is way too small for my usage.

However, when searching through the address bar of Google Chrome, it always shows 10 results, regardless of my settings. If I go to http://google.com/ first and search the same thing, it displays 100 results.

Why is this happening, and how can I get my 100 results even when searching from the Google Chrome address bar?

It works for me. But it only works if instant results are set to "Never show Instant results." –  Alex Feb 11 '12 at 13:43

You need to change this

{google:baseURL}search?{google:RLZ}{google:acceptedSuggestion}{google:originalQ‌​ueryForSuggestion}{google:searchFieldtrialParameter}{google:instantFieldTrialGrou‌​pParameter}sourceid=chrome&ie={inputEncoding}&q=%s

Somehow I cannot get my browser to use {parameter} style queries so here is what worked for me

https://www.google.com/search?num=100&q=%s

to include num=100 in the settings of the browser chrome://settings/searchEngines.

The settings for Google search app does not control the query to an extent within the browser itself (If you are incognito, the above query will not work).

This has the side-benefit that it works in Incognito mode as well. –  Synetech Feb 16 '12 at 4:09

Try this this bookmarklets: num=100

In addition to appending num=100 to the URL in the Search Engines entry, you can also simply log into a Google account and set your preferences. When you subsequently do a search (from anywhere so long as it is not in Incognito mode), it should do so with the parameters you specified.

  • Log on to Google Search setting. You can set this in almost all browsers, I have tried it in Firefox, Google chrome and it worked perfectly for me. -Now look for “Google Instant predictions” , It might be second option there.
  • You can manually choose number of pages you want to see on your Google Search.

This setting is honored when first going to google.com but not when searching from the address bar in Chrome. –  nos Feb 25 at 10:47
    
As above, doesn't work through address bar and so doesn't provide an answer to the question. –  Matthew Williams Feb 25 at 11:34
