I find it impossible to set DDG as the default search engine in Chrome. I've read everything in the forums, done everything suggested and nothing ever works. One helpful person stated, "As stated directly above this post, you can manually add DDG as an option by deleting your existing DDG search extension from Chrome's preferences menu, and then simply create a new addition by adding the following code https://duckduckgo.com/?q=%s
DDG is not listed under "Default Search Settings". It is listed below under "Search Engines added by Extensions" (See screenshot please), but there is nothing to do to make this create DDG as the default search engine. I highlight it and click done and still nothing changes.
Is it really this difficult to make DDG be the default search engine in Chrome? It seems strange to me that this is such a puzzle and it does not speak well for either Chrome or DDG.
Any help with this would greatly appreciated.
