Search service for context help

When I use context help in Rider (put my cursor on the class/method I want to get help about and press F1) I get an official documentation from Microsoft if it is built in class, or a Google search if it is a third-party class.

After upgrading from build RD-221 to build RD-222, I started getting search in DuckDuckGo. Is there a possibility to bring Google search back?

Hello Artem,

Regrettably, customizing the search engine is not possible at the moment. Rider switched to DuckDuckGo because this was a popular request, but we hope to implement an option to switch search engine in the scope of this issue. Please feel free to vote for and follow this issue to monitor progress.

In the meantime, I suggest trying !g and !md bangs that should take you to Google and Microsoft docs respectively. Apologies for the inconvenience.
