Hello a few days ago i realised that when i'm searching via google chrome browser, it automatically launches my search from the address bar. Is there ANY way from switching this off please? I just want to be able to search from the normal search option ONLY. many thanks

The address bar is also used for search. What do you mean by the "normal" search option?

I have just put "how to turn off google search in address bar", in a Google search and various other alternatives to that title, and quite a lot of advice and information came up, far to many to select a link from.

Possibly doing the same, will give the results you want?.

Hi woolwell, what I mean is that instead of typing what i'm looking for into the address bar, all i want to do is type in the google search field, and NOT the address bar.

I still don't understand what you mean. Which Google search field? If for example you open then you can type in the search box on the webpage and you don't have to use the address bar.
