Usually there is a UK option in Google search. Today there seems no such option. I have W7 and ie8. Has this changed or is it me?

That when I launch Goole (my default opening page) it is now Google UK - is this a change?

not Goole, Google!

Oops.Just noticed that I get it now.

Thanks. Up to yesterday, I am sure that when I entered a search word or phrase, beneath the search box were two boxes that you could check - one for world wide, one for uk. I wonder if, somehow, I had a different Google as default , which somehow switched to UK overnight, but it is a mystery.

When W7 first started you could not get Google Uk as a search provider but just noticed that it works now for some reason not sure when it started but never noticed it before your post this morning.

Will tick this as resolved. Thanks
Fruit Bat /\0/\ also . I think somehow buteman has provided the answer , that Goole UK has only just become the default page in ie8 for W7.

Two ways to skin this cat, set google UK as your homepage then you will get the UK search option or even add Google.co.uk into your favourites and use it when you want the UK option
