I live in Mexico full time. When I open Google, it goes to google.mx. How do I get it to go to google in the US? I do not want to stop being able to access google.mx but would appreciate being able to open in the US.

Browse to google.com/ncr
ncr stands for No Country Redirect apparently.

Does it make a difference?  I find it does not make any difference any more.

Yes, it does. Without the ncr, I get redirected to google.co.nz (since I'm in New Zealand) when I try to go to google.com.

John, search results are quite different... they are localised for each country. Without the ncr, I get results localised to New Zealand, even when I tried to access google.com for the search.
