  • HI
    we can use below policy to set ie as default brower.
    Set the default browser using Group Policy
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/ie11-deploy-guide/set-the-default-browser-using-group-policy
    we can use below domain policy to disable client to use cortana  search in startmenu .
    Computer Configuration\ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components  Search Allow Cortana disable
    after we do above things and restart the client computer ,i think there is not default bing engine because cortana is disable and end users will use google engine by enter the google website address.End users can set their favorite site in IE.
