    Your default search engine only works when you search in the search box at the very top of the screen in the toolbar. If you are on a home page or other site with a built in search box you will be using their search engine. Here is an example. Notice the search box at the top of the page which I have my default engine set to DuckDuckGo. If I search there I am using my default engine. However if I search on the search box on AT&T home page I am using Google.

    Did you actually set Google for your default browser

    EDIT:

    Try this

    Open up Chrome

    On the top right corner, click the three vertical dots

    Select settings

    Scroll to search engines

    Remove the yahoo option, plus the others if you want too
