Hello everyone, It’s Tracy here. Today, I’m going to walk you through how to change search engine on your Kindle fire. Using this detailed guide, you can customize your browsing preferences to suit your needs. This process is simple and straightforward.

Why Change Your Search Engine?

By default, Kindle Fire’s browser—Silk—uses Bing as its search engine. However, you might prefer to use another search engine such as Google, Yahoo, or DuckDuckGo.

Steps to Change Your Kindle’s Search Engine

Step 1: Open the Silk Browser

From your Kindle Fire’s Home screen, launch the Silk browser.

Step 2: Access the Settings Menu

Once in the Silk browser, tap on the three-line menu button (also known as the hamburger button) at the top left of your screen to open the browser settings.

Step 3: Change the Search Engine

Scroll down until you see the term ‘Search Engine.’ Tap on it and a list of available search engine options will appear, including Google, Bing, Yahoo, and DuckDuckGo. Choose your preferred search engine by tapping on it.

Step 4: Confirm the Change

Close the settings menu. Your new search engine should now be set and ready to use.


Changing the search engine on your Kindle Fire takes just a few taps. It lets you personalize your browsing experience, providing you with search results that line up with your needs and preferences.
