Restore/Revert Back Old Google Search Box and Font Size

Google recently rolled out new changes to the homepage where they increased the the size of the search box and the size of the font to make it a lot more larger.

The bigger font is definitely not appealing and I guess many of you might agree with me, if you are looking to revert back to the old search box and font size in Google you can do so by using a script.


Once you have installed the script it will revert back the size of the search box and font size to the one we are all so used to.

The script works in both and , but you will have to enable userscript support in Google Chrome before you can use it.

    Is there any way to restore Google’s old search page? I don’t like the ‘Everything’ and all on the side of the page.

    I had this problem one time before and am having this problem again now. When I resolved the problem the last time, I had to restore the computor back to it’s factory settings and the old google box came back as a factory default. If you do this, be sure to make a set of back-up disc or save all of your info on a external hard drive so that you can replace it.
