  1. Allow image free background

    One of Bing's instantly recognizable features are its beautiful, tastefully curated images. Most of us really appreciate those and are excited to see the new ones coming each day. When I asked friends to switch to Bing, I encountered couple of opinions that they prefer Google's "clean" interface, regardless how beautiful images on Bing's homepage are. Of course their preference is based on the fact that before Google people had to go to websites full with information and type their query. They don't realize that Bing provides the next step after cleaning the background. Still we can wait for them…

      Hi Georgi

      Yes, that is a good suggestion, and something they can do currently to not display the Homepage picture. See this article “Turn the image off and on”
      http://onlinehelp.microsoft.com/en-us/bing/ff808506.aspx. Regarding the use of a different color background, that is really interesting and have passed it on to the team that works on this feature. Will get back to you once they give us an update.
      Thanks for being such a loyal fan and do keep your ideas coming :-)

    • New Homepage Tough for Elderly

      The newspapge of the Homepage has images too small, too numerous and difficult to read. If the script were on a black or white background, it would be easier to read. Besides that, there are too many teeny boxes to sort through. Much easier if it is sorted according to genre.

      • Date and Time Option

        Add Option to include a Date and Time display on the homepage.
        Make it clickable to display world time zones and/or a major event that happened on this day.

          • The homepage carousel on bing.com should scroll with the mousewheel on hover

            Whenever I go to the bing.com homepage and look at the news carousel at the bottom to me it's tedious to have to always click the arrow-tab overlays to scroll the carousel. Hovering over the carousel with the mouse and then using the mouse wheel should scroll the carousel right or left depending on the direction I roll the mouse wheel.

            • Bing.com Picture of the Day tidbits

              When reading the description in the boxes surrounding the photo of the Day, an arrow appears to see more. Rather than turning to a new webpage, why not have a Flyout to reveal the entire content so one doesn't have to click back to read the next info box.

                Hi there
                Thanks for the feedback!
                Quick update to let you know that we did share your idea with the team and they will prioritize it based on the number of votes it gets relative to other ideas being submitted.

                Do continue to keep your ideas coming, use them to improve Bing!

              • Give us the option the change the Windows wallpaper into the Bing image of the day.

                I would love to see the option to change my wallpaper into the Bing image of the day. Previously this was possible with Bing Desktop but that (useless) tool doesn't work in Windows 10.

                For my lockscreen I have installed the app 'Amazing Lock Screen' and that works really great. I would be awesome if also the normal wallpaper could be changed daily / hourly into the Bing image.

                  • Derived Usage UX/UI

                    I believe, that the search engine should respond to the users behavior to some extent (as it relates to search and the user login). Pattern the engine to reduce down to the most used features for the users usage.

                    I'm sure you have the statistical information to make this feasible; as you are able to advertise based upon the same data. Utilize, that knowledge data to derive features and reduce the bloat of the search engine homepage. Offer the invisible features as a foldout option...

                      • Make Bing homepage animated on Firefox

                        I heard that MS devs deactivated the feature on Firefox due to memory leak issue. Has anything been done with that? I want my Bing homepage animated too on my Firefox. Thanks.

                                • Add “no homepage image” option to Settings, instead of hiding it in a webpage

                                  Please add the option to turn off the homepage image on Bing settings, Homepage tab (http://www.bing.com/account/homepage), so that the “Image size” section would offer “Show a larger image”, “Show a smaller image”, and “Show no image”. I know it’s already possible to do turn it off by going to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=279929, and to turn it back on by going to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=279930, but it’s almost impossible to discover, documented only here: http://onlinehelp.microsoft.com/en-us/bing/ff808506.aspx. There are users with severely low bandwidth who want it, among them https://binglistens.uservoice.com/forums/283355-ideas/suggestions/7175985 and https://binglistens.uservoice.com/forums/283355-ideas/suggestions/7200542.

                                  • Get the video of the day to work on Opera

                                    When the image of the day is actually a video it does not play in Opera. It is nice that you at least display a still image, but it would be nicer if the video worked.
