Search Engine difficulty in saving to Brave browser

I am setting up my Browser and would prefer Start Page to be search engine but am not really getting how to get it saved rather than put it in a bookmark. Also, since it has its own settings upon installing it as a search engine, i would have to save its settings too, within the Brave browser settings and reading the how-to on adding it to Brave, I’m not clear on just how i would save it and seeing it in the icon on the app window’s slot.
Thanks for any help if this is has clarity to understand my issue.
