@info – The practical side of SharePoint

Modify the default scope for your search box

To modify the default scope

Go to your home page and navigate to “Site Actions” –> “Site Settings” –> “Modify All Site Settings“.
On this page, pick “Search scopes” under the Site Collection Administration.
Here you’ll see some different “Display groups“, one of them is the “Search Dropdown” (which is the search box you see on your SharePoint site).
If you click on the “Search Dropdown” link, you’ll be taken to a page with some settings for this group and the bottom one is where you set your default scope.
Modify this to whatever you want, click OK and you’re done!
