Add Ecosia to search providers

This policy adds Ecosia to the list of search providers that will be displayed in Internet Explorer's search box.

If you enable this policy setting and if the "Restrict search providers to a specific list of search providers" Group Policy setting is enabled, this list will be the only list that appears in the Internet Explorer drop-down list. If the "Add Ecosia to user's list of search providers" Group Policy setting is enabled, Ecosia will be added to the user's list of search providers.

If you disable this policy setting or do not configure it, users will have complete freedom to create their own search provider list.


Supported on: At least Internet Explorer 7.0
