How to remove "other search engines" from Chrome

  • Open the Chrome search engine settings page: chrome://settings/searchEngines

  • Selector for topmost “Remove search engine” button in “Other search engines” list:

document.querySelector("body > settings-ui").shadowRoot
.querySelector("#main").shadowRoot
.querySelector("settings-basic-page").shadowRoot
.querySelector("#basicPage > settings-section.expanded > settings-search-page").shadowRoot
.querySelector("#pages > settings-subpage > settings-search-engines-page").shadowRoot
.querySelector("#otherEngines").shadowRoot
.querySelector("#frb0").shadowRoot
.querySelector("#delete");
  • You can repeatedly call the selector and “click()” on the button.
document.querySelector("body > settings-ui").shadowRoot
.querySelector("#main").shadowRoot
.querySelector("settings-basic-page").shadowRoot
.querySelector("#basicPage > settings-section.expanded > settings-search-page").shadowRoot
.querySelector("#pages > settings-subpage > settings-search-engines-page").shadowRoot
.querySelector("#otherEngines").shadowRoot
.querySelector("#frb0").shadowRoot
.querySelector("#delete")
.click();
