  1. Show new Emails in Outlook

    Google has this feature. Why not Bing? As a outlook user, this would be amazing!!

    • 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.

      • Friday Freebies - like Aol used to have

        Aol used to have something called Friday Freebies. I always looked forward to checking it. Also, they would list specials such as Donut Day, and various other "holidays" with their specials. It was interesting, as well as, rewarding.

            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.

          • Bing settings integration with Microsoft account

            I don'twant to keep having to select "open in new tab" all the time.

                • 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.

                  • Seperate history from trending

                    Have a organized list of things you searched for previously and how many times you searched it, and have a real time trending separated from your history. Localize

                      Thank you for the idea. As a result of your suggestion, the team will be investigating its feasibility and we’ll get back to you once we have an update. Please continue to submit ideas to make Bing a great product!

                    • Home page should show tabs for all features (wihch is missing)

                      Home page or top bar should show tabs for all features (wihch is missing)
                      For e.g. FLIGHTS tab is not shown unless I type in like e.g. "JFK to Bangalore", Then in the next page, I get to see FLIGHTS tab.

                      User wont be able to explore if these features / tabs are not made visible to them.

                      • Ability to have download the bing backgrounds and have them auto update.

                        Bing allows you to download their daily image and set it as a background on your PC. It would be nice if you could download a something that would auto download the new images and add it to a background slide show, so you could always have new background images.

                          • Check the network quality of the recipient and then decide whether to load a background image or not, this would make homepage loading faste

                            All devices having access to bing search might not have a quality connection, hence you can check the recipients network quality and decide whether to provide him an awesome image or an awesome page loading speed.

                                • Use more side-scrolling headlines reflecting each interest on home page.

                                  Use more side-scrolling headlines reflecting each interest on home page.

                                  Just like the single side-scrolling headlines, allow people to add these for each of their interests.

                                  The giant picture on Bing is neat and sets it apart from other search pages, but is not very useful. Keep it there for people who aren't signed in, but for people who are, let us customize a bit more.

                                      Hello, we wanted to share an update. We are currently working on adding sports tiles to the carousel for the teams you’re interested in. You will be able to see schedule, live score, and post-game score updates.

                                    • 中国区的首页页脚的“热点新闻”十分碍眼

                                      首页下方的新闻往往是一些毫无意义的文章,比如今天的
                                      ”中国第一狗仔“
                                      ”月嫂年薪30万“
                                      ”女婴眼里长白虫“
                                      ”大熊猫深夜逛街“
                                      ”中国游客泰国出家“
                                      这些博取眼球的标题比比皆是,无异于鱼龙混杂的新闻小户,提供这些只会浪费时间的信息,想必有悖于”有求必应“的口号吧。
                                      当这款微软打造的“帮助全球的个人和企业充分发挥自己的潜力”的工具变得比娱乐为主的百度更八卦时,真的会伤害一些忠诚用户的心
