      • Switchable users

        My wife and I both use the same computer but have separate Hotmail and Bing Rewards accounts. It would be nice if we could just click the User Avatar and easily switch between the two of us without having to go through the entire logout / log in scenario.

        • Promote the cool and unique things Bing does in a dedicated box on the Bing homepage.

          Bing does a lot of cool things that not many people are aware of like having a guitar tuner or Bing predicting sport games. These cool and exciting features will help Bing get noticed but the problem is not many people know about these features because all these cools stuff are only promoted in the Explore section of Bing instead of being promoted on the homepage. I believe that Bing should dedicate a small box next to search bar to promote these cool little features. People using Bing would start to take notice at these features when they see this…

                Thank you for the suggestion. Bing does offer Bing in the classroom, which is an ads free, safer search experience available for public and private K-12 schools in the United States. Please visit bing.com/classroom and encourage this with parents and teachers you know. We will also consider your idea to provide a more kid friendly Bing experience. Thank you.

              • Go_bing Idea 4 - Add Themes

                Some users prefer simple homepage like google [ least distracting ], I like bing homepage.

                The search results page can have themes that users can pick like duckduckgo but better..

                Point is give options. User knows what he wants and each user has different taste.

                Themes will differentiate you from google.

                Note: Some don't like underline for links, so there can be a theme that doesn't underline but highlight link differently.. you get the point.

                  • simpler search homepage

                    Bing can spend countless time changing around and improving the little details all they want. The truth is, the homepage is the first thing someone will see. Simpler is better. Hire a top professional designer.
                    Heck, just make the page less chaotic. Bing.com currently focuses on a random picture that changes everyday instead of the search bar (which is pushed aside, up to the top left corner of the page). If you want more people to search using bing, create a more minimalist search homepage.
                    I read previously that you can change your settings to make a "blank homepage". Obviously,…

                        Thanks for the great ideas. We are actually working on improving the Search History viewer and have already planned to include your first two ideas! We want to change the grid view to a list view so it’s easier for users to browse through their history and a date range will help users find past history they don’t remember the exact date for. The third idea is also an interesting one we’ll review and see if we can include in our improvements. We’ll keep you posted on our progress.

                        • A homepage redesign

                          Currently, the Bing homepage looks sorta clunky. A while ago, I decided to redesign the homepage to fit some of the ideas seen in Windows 10. (Either released builds or mockups) I've attached a file of it below. In it, the Office Online menu has been redesigned to be like the ribbon, and the grey bars have transparency. If used, other menus could have ribbons like the Office Online one. For example, MSN could display a list of MSN apps, news could completely replace the bar with the arrow on the bottom, and images/videos could show popular searches.

                            edge has a tendency to hang/freeze due to adobe flash, along with each time I change settings to have bing be my home page, once I closed edge it resets back. I so would of had so many more points if not for this issue that nobody seems to have a fix, that works

                                      • you should have a button to press for people trying to learn to you bing.

                                        For people coming from google or other search engines there should be a button in the corner called tutorial which will highlight some of the reasons people should switch to Bing and what great features there are and how to use them. This will really help people understand why they should use Bing.

                                        • Show Bing main page in vertical mode in Internet Explorer (when holding a tablet in vertical position)

                                          The homepage for Bing with the beautifull wallpaper should be shown in vertical mode when you open the page with Internet Explorer using a Windows tablet in vertical position.
