How Can I Make My Computer Think It Is In .co.uk?

10 posts in this topic

I would like my computers to search google.co.uk when I type a keyword into the address bar rather than google.co.th

I am using Chrome and Firefox. I have changed the settings in the browsers but they still search .co.th

Is there anything else I need to change?

Thanks.

In firefox the easy way is to install the Googlebar light addon and the ability to set your default search loaction is one of the options.

Else type About:config in the menu bar and change the approriate settings

browser. search. defaulturl to http://www.google.co.uk or other location you may wish

As long as you do not clear your cookies the "ncr" (no country re-direct) after google one time, as in post #3, will take care of it.

Will that take him to Google UK?

Err! No but it will keep him in Google English :)

Occasionally I use GOOGLE in Germany via this URL:

www.google.com/intl/de

it does not upset my local settings or affect my cookies.

this should also work for /uk
