"Like other versions of Windows, Windows 8 comes with the latest version of Internet Explorer preinstalled, IE10, but it also comes with Bing as the default search provider. If you’re not a fan of Bing, changing it is going to take some work. But we have all the steps outlined below."

You have to open the desktop version of IE instead. Then go into tools (Alt+T)>manage add-ons. In the resulting window you should be able to “Select Search Provider”. Pick what you want there, and it may or may not work, and you will have to try again. Microsoft makes you work to change away from Bing.
