Microsoft Releases Bing Desktop Beta

Bing Desktop provides an automatic update of the Windows Desktop Background image to the Bing home page image each day. In addition, Bing Desktop offers an easily accessible yet unobstrusive search box to streamline searching without opening the browser.

    going to download it now

  • Emi Cyberschreiber

    its for Windows 7, you should mention that in your article, saddly not Windows 8 supported.

    • Johan

      yeah, hope they will support bing wallpaper on W8 later on. The ones in customer preview doesn’t satisfy most people.

      • Emi Cyberschreiber

        well i guess Bing isnt supported in Win8 because there will be a Bing App for metro UI.

        and about wallpaper, they are polishing some stuff, who knows if they will allow picture background in start screen, but i dont care much about it, you could also use a tool like wcp start screen customizer, not perfect but better for people who wants customization.

    Doesn’t work with vista :(

    All of your Windows 7 applications will work great on Windows 8, except of course a Bing Desktop made by Microsoft. This reminds me of the unsigned drivers warnings that would come up for MS own drivers. Who is the moron that released this and didn’t make sure it worked on Win 8. Pathetic, sorry. I was really looking forward to it.

  • The Muffin Man

    Uh, it doesn’t work on W8 because W8 will have its own metro app for this and W8 isn’t completed yet. That’s like complaining that a pair of pajamas won’t fit your unborn fetus… Yes, exactly, it’s not born yet and it’s not ready yet. See how things work now? Sure. I knew you would.

    “Supported operating systems: Windows 7, Windows 7
    Professional, Windows 7 Service Pack 1

    No Vista, no Windows 8.

    Working on Windows 8!! How ? Just install on Windows 7 firts (I have dual boot). Than just copy “BingDesktop” folder (Program Files/Microsoft), and open in Win8 (Compatibility mode/Windows 7) DONE!! Everything works 100%  I don’t use Bing, but I love hi res Bing wallpapers 😉
