Microsoft now offers an official way to use the beautiful photos on the Bing homepage as wallpaper. Every day, the tool automatically retrieves a new high-resolution image from Bing and sets it as a wallpaper for your desktop.
One of the biggest wishes of a certain subgroup of Microsoft fans for some time now was the ability to automatically set the desktop wallpaper to the image that appears daily on the Bing homepage. Microsoft has now delivered an official application that bears the simple name Bing Wallpaper.
The application is a simple program that you can download from Microsoft and install on any PC. After installation, the Bing Wallpaper will be in your system tray and will automatically switch to the daily Bing image.
What is the Bing Wallpaper App?
Bing Wallpaper contains a collection of beautiful images from around the world that can be seen on the Bing homepage,” Microsoft explains. Not only will you see a new image on your desktop every day, but you can also browse through the images and find out where they come from.
Interestingly, the Bing desktop application has allowed users to set the daily Bing image as their desktop background. However, this application has also brought many other features, such as the ability to search for Bing from the desktop and define information flows.
The only small disadvantage of the application is that when you install it, it prompts you to set your default homepage and search provider in your browsers to Bing. If you want to have the daily Bing homepage picture on your desktop, but you don’t really want to use Bing, this could be a problem. Microsoft makes this option optional, so be sure to uncheck the boxes during installation.
How to Get the Bing Wallpaper App
To get wallpapers from the Bing home page every day, you need to download the official Bing Wallpaper application from the Microsoft site.
Run the downloaded application to install it, and be sure to disable “Set Bing as my home page” and “Set Bing as my default search provider” if you don’t want to set Bing as your new home page and default search engine in Chrome, Firefox, and Edge.
The “Bing Wallpaper” application will install and automatically get and set a new wallpaper for your desktop. You will see all the images that appear on the Bing home page today.
