    • Download Bing Homepage Image in 4K

      The highest resolution that can be downloaded using the API is 1920x1200. I would like to have the option to download images at 4K resolution. This would also help a Windows Store app (Dynamic Theme) that is used to set Windows 10 desktops.

          • Add an opportunity to retrieve / change Bing Maps API query key programmatically or via powershell

            Hi,
            We have a web application deployed in Azure via powershell script. Our application uses Bing Maps API an has an appropriate variable for a query key in the applications setting (available in the Azure portal). The problem is that we can't retrieve a Bing Maps API query key programmatically (via API or Powershell). That's why we have to manually update the value of that variable after each deployment. I was able to catch a web request from Azure portal that returns a query key and reproduce it via powershell web request. Unfortunately I can't authenticate this request properly, because…

            • Make a store map that pops up when you search for a product e.g. Map of Home Depot closet to your location that shows where the clr is

              Make a store map that pops up when you search for a product e.g. Map of Home Depot closet to your location that shows where the clr is And gives an aisle number with pricing. It would be cool if there was a bing pay aspect as well that allows you to add the item to pick up in store using your Microsoft account

                  • Improve the history tab

                    I want to find a page I was on 20 days ago in my history. I have to sit there for 25 minutes hitting "Older" just to find it. Make it load automatically. This is so annoying and it seems amateurish on the part of programmers.

                    • Get driving distance from a point to multiple other points

                      Would like to pass in a lat/lon source and then multiple lat/lon destination points and get the driving distance from source to each destination. Would need to perform such that we can present user with results after a search request.

                      • You ********* the arrows for going to the next page.

                        The arrows in Bing for going to the next page are slightly cut of. They aren't perfectly rounded. It's really ugly and amateuristic. Please fix this.

                          • Show traffic cams on embedded map?

                            I know you can use the VEMap.LoadTraffic method to show traffic flow, is there a similar method or way to also show traffic cameras on an embedded map? I want to be able to click on the traffic cam and see a live view of the traffic. This is possible on the bing site but have yet to figure out how to do it on an embedded map

                              Engineers and Developers should not be restricted by a dumbed down interface tailored for the consumer market. We are being heavily restricted. The search engine in our manual these days (RTFM) as everything is dynamic and changes. We embrace the changes as it makes everything better, stronger, and faster, but there are so many changes that our manuals go out of date rapidly, thus we use the search engine.

                              StackOverflow, for example, was a great site, but now sucks because the moderators are border-line NAZIs. I want to permanently filter them out of…

                                • Why did you restrict the Testing API Bing Search from 5000 to 1000 ?

                                  I'm developing a Mobile App that uses Bing Search for images. I was in the middle of the project when I received the notification about the upgrade. Im fine with that change but why did you restrict the number of searches ? In order to test my APP i have to execute more than 1000 searches per month. Not sure if making Developer to pay for testing is a good idea for Microsoft.

                                  • Add Washington, DC to State drop down list

                                    Your search options do not list Washington, DC as a State. Technically, it's not (yet), but it should be listed in drop down menus because we are still in the United States.

                                      • bing will not give me an existing website - trying to get www.americanpresstravelnews.com

                                        Why does bing not recognize www.americanpresstravelnews.com

                                        I own it, it is active and bing says it does not exist. very upsetting.
