    Adding to IE Search

    I would like to add Google and other search engines to the search options available on IE 5.5. I.E. when I click on IE's Search, I would like to customize the settings. Is there a way to do this?

    You can customize to a certain extent by using the "Customize" feature in the search task pane. Since I have IE 5.0 at home, I can't verify if Google is an option for 5.5 (it isn't on 5.0), or if it allows you to select outside it's preset options.

    Have you tried the Google toolbar? Though this will not add Google to the list of search engines, it is a very convenient way to access Google.

    ...or you can just add Google to your links bar.

    Thanks everyone. I'm going to check out the Web Accessories And add Google to my links. The customization is somewhat limited but I think these others will let me do what I want. Thanks again!
