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."

You need to change this


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


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.

Hope this help. Ley us know. :)


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.
