Customising Monocles Search

Use as default search


This is the step-by-step procedure how to set monocles.de as your default search engine on your desktop browser. We'll be using Chrome browser as an example, the steps on another browser are similar to this.

  1. Visit https://monocles.de

Tweak the search results


You can tweak your search results on Preferences in the right corner of the main search page. Refer to these images for detailed instructions.

  • General tab consists of the basics of search settings and will affect the general search result such as: displayed search language, adult filter, and autocomplete.
  • Engines tab will enable you to tailor your search result based on the search engine you've been chosen. The more engines you choose the more varieties of results you will get.
  • Advanced tab is mostly referring to specific things, and most of the time it's best to leave it as it is.
