Google is one of the most widely used search engines in the world. Based on the location and IP of the user, Google automatically selects the preferred language of the country as the default language for the page. This sometimes can cause problems if the user is not a native of that country and is unfamiliar with the local language. This problem can be easily solved by changing the settings of the web browser. Most web browsers have the option of setting a custom home page and custom search engine which suits the user's needs better.
I have a new laptop which I bought in the USA, but am currently living in Spain. When I type www.google.com to perform a search, it automatically changes to www.google.es. This has happened to me with other computers, and so I know that if I click "google.com in English" it goes back to www.google.com. But with my laptop, it immediately goes back to www.google.es and if I perform a search, it gives the results in Spanish first. Searching for pictures or news is even more difficult. How do I change the settings so I can use www.google.com instead of www.google.es?
