Google - UK Pages

Once again Google have done an update (why can't I switch off automatic updates, like any normal programme!) and I can no longer find the selection for "UK Pages Only".

Can anyone help?

When results show, click on 'Search Tools' and then on 'Any Country' and choose UK from there

The "wrench" icon hasn't appeared in the tool bar for some years.

That was the normal method, of course.

Unfortunately the "Any Country£ option has disappeared, and all that comes up now are "Any Time" or "All Results"

Bottom right hand corner

click on Google.com it should change to Google.co.uk thenc;ose the page

when reopened it should open as google .co.uk again giving UK pages when you search.

I found this on Google groups.

There is a work around that seems to work at the moment. This URL: click here performs a UK pages only search straight from the first screen. It means having two Google bookmarks/favourites set up, one for the global only URL and one for the UK only URL

I'm baffled by this one. Using Chrome (or any other browser) when I open Google it opens to Google.co.uk not .com even if I searched for .com. I then do a search and at the results list at the top I get a menu which lists web, images, etc and at the right search tools. I click on that and get the option Any country and below that I can select Country the UK. Now what am I doing differently to get this option?

Woolwell, I'm using Firefox and that is how mine is as well, hence my post Yesterday at 6:21PM. I can only think that on my pc Google hasn't yet 'updated' like morddwyd's? I can't think of any other reason for it to be different.

My versions of Chrome and Firefox are up to date.

Wonder if it is a do not track, or ad blocker or other anti-location setting?

Done it using Fruitbat's method, though I had to hunt for a screen showing "Google.com" borrow right.

Thanks for all the responses.
