Default search provider search URL

Specifies the URL of the search engine used when doing a default search. The URL should contain the string '{searchTerms}', which will be replaced at query time by the terms the user is searching for.

Google's search URL can be specified as: '{google:baseURL}search?q={searchTerms}&{google:RLZ}{google:originalQueryForSuggestion}{google:assistedQueryStats}{google:searchFieldtrialParameter}{google:searchClient}{google:sourceId}ie={inputEncoding}'.

This option must be set when the 'DefaultSearchProviderEnabled' policy is enabled and will only be respected if this is the case.

Example value:{searchTerms}

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
