Bing Desktop Review

Tina de Pierre
Adds Bing functionality and wallpapers to your desktop
A review of Bing Desktop by Tina de Pierre

Beware when installing this: The installer will attempt to set Bing as your default search engine (in Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari), Internet Explorer as your default search engine and several other check-boxes we highly suggest deselecting.

Bing Desktop is an interesting desktop enhancement not because of its attempt to hijack your browser(s) and search engines, but solely for the fact that it includes Bing's beautiful wallpapers. One annoying thing is that Bing Desktop will also add a default search field to beside your system tray but that can be removed with a right-click on the taskbar.

The settings which are accessible via the gear icon can enable/disable auto-start, hotkeys and whether or not to automatically change your desktop background daily with the image from Bing.com.

There are some other features and integration with Bing like top trending images, news stories, celebrities and videos. Bing Desktop can also add Facebook feeds to your desktop if you're too lazy to open up your browser.

Apart from the lovely backgrounds you'll have presented to you, there isn't too much about this application that we can praise unless you're interested in seeing what the top trending images are on Bing search are.
