In IE9, if the search engine one utilizes does not find what one was looking for, one has to retype the search in order to use a different search engine. Is there a way to change this behavior?
You do not have to retype or copy and paste the search term. This is what you can do:
After searching using Search Engine A, click the
magnifying glassicon in the address bar. The search suggestions drop-down will appear.
Double click on the icon for Search Engine B at the bottom of the drop-down.
Note: this works even if you have drifted away from a search engine's website, as Internet Explorer will remember your most recent search from the address bar.
