By default, the Yandex browser does not have Yandex.com as the search engine. You need to manually add Yandex.com.

Here are the steps:

  • Open browser://settings/searchEngines in the Yandex browser. Click on "Add" present at the right corner. It will open a pop-up window "Add search engine".
  • Enter these details (remove space between https and :). 
    • Name: Yandex
    • Key: https ://yandex.com/?
    • Link with the %s parameter instead of query: https ://yandex.com/search/?text=%s
  • Click on the "Add" button.
  • Now you will see that Yandex is listed as one of the search engines.
  • Hover your mouse over Yandex and click on "Set as default"

Now you have Yandex.com as your search engine.
