Microsoft® releases Bing™ desktop for Windows® 7 PCs
The Bing Team at the Bing Community blog announced that the new service will put the Bing homepage right on the desktop of user’s computer screen.
Here are the excerpts from the blog post: “Bing Desktop marries the beauty of Bing’s daily homepage with a quick and convenient search interface so you don’t have to open your browser to start a search session. Every day, your Windows Desktop Background will automatically refresh to a high resolution version of the day’s home page, drawn from the images we use around the world.”
The Bing Desktop can be installed on PCs running the U.S. English version of Windows 7. After installation, a Bing taskbar icon can be used to bring up a search bar on the desktop. The search results will open in the computer’s default web browser.
