Google Search Engine Change - Need Fix

My Google Search Engine seems to have magically changed!

Previously when I did a search I could select either to search the world or New Zealand. Now, the options are to search now, the last hour, the week, the last month etc?

Any idea how to get it back to the way it was please?

do it manually to narrow things down. eg for all .nz domains
= searchexample site:.nz

Thank you - that is handy to know!

But this is driving me mad. I used to have the option to select New Zealand and it seems to have disappeared?

I did notice that as well. Might just have to use the advanced search options in the Google search page settings.
Or use "operators" ( such as above ) in the initial search

I've noticed that too. Just add "NZ" to the end of your searches.
