Google creates easy guide for “Getting Your Google Back” in Windows 8

Windows 8 is officially available now which means a lot of people are getting their first taste of the new OS. They might be wondering “why is Bing everywhere?” and “what if I don’t like IE?”. If you’re more familiar with Google Search and Chrome browser you might be asking yourself “how do I get my Google back?” Don’t worry, it’s simple.

Google has created GetYourGoogleBack.com¬†for this very reason. It’s actually a very simple process. To use Google Search just simple install the app from the Windows Store. To use Google Chrome just download it and set it as your default browser. When it is your default browser it will open up in the Metro environment like a true Windows 8 app. That’s it!
