The tip here is  by using the Google option “I’m feeling  lucky” assigning directly from your URL bar.After creating a default Google search as described below ,will activate the I’m feeling lucky, so instead of searching for the word  you typed in the URL bar, it will take you directly to the first result[(this only works when is evidently the name of the site)].

  2. Now Under Default search options , if Google is set as default search engine ,just delete it [To delete make any other search engines  for eg:Bing as Default.Then only a delete option [a ‘ x’ mark]will occur for Google search].
  3. Under Other search engines create a new search engine, On first Column under Add a new search engine  type Google. Under second column on Keyword section type google.com.   [you can also use co.xx like for eg: google.co.uk , google.co.in]
  4. Next under third column  ” URL WITH %” section     type or paste
