hi Tejinder, unfortunately microsoft has taken the unfriendly step to hard code any searches in the windows 10 search bar to be performed with edge - https://www.ghacks.net/2016/04/29/microsoft-blocks-search-engines-windows-10/

you should be able to get a particular site loaded in firefox with this command though:

firefox.exe www.google.com

Hi philipp,

Command line helps to resolve what I was looking at. And I know MS restriction on command line search which works with edge only, thats why I lead to this question ...

Thanks a lot !!! Regards
