  1. FAMILY TREE MAKER 'PLACES' DROP-DOWN MENU

    FAMILY TREE MAKER (FTM) contains a Bing-originated drop-down menu of place names. This feedback is about English North-country place-names. I wrote to FTM about this and was directed to your site.

    Your list of place-names is not exhaustive, for good reasons - one being that some names have disappeared, often through changes in 19th century local government.

    The problem is that FTM users need to be able to use these names to localise their family groups and, often as a result of cross-matching, to identify other users of FTM and therefore 'Ancestry' with the same family interests, in the same…

    • Enable all the Australian Bing services for New Zealand

      In New Zealand we use Bing but we need to pretend to be from Australia to get the services we want like maps. Of course this screws with other things like search results being from Australia not NZ.

      Call it a Beta if need be and while you're at it bring Cortana along for the ride.

      • Make Bing detect the browser language and show relevant local content - currently it doesn't.

        Currently when I open bing.com through Google or through the URL it opens the site in Bulgarian, but if I search through the address bar it opens in English and there are no local results like there are in Google. Why don't you prefer results in Bulgarian when you detect that a site is in Bulgarian language when you index it - that way you will be able to customize the results like Google does. And it is very stupid sometimes - I start typing something to search for in Cyrillic but Bulgarian, and it shows autocomplete results in Cyrillic…

          • Stop changing my location

            So I live outside of US but have Bing set to US because it is much better like you all know.
            Everytime I search from the edge search bar you change my region to international.
            Until this issue is fixed I am unfortunately forced to use Google, as much as I hate that, atleast it gives me relevant results.

            • Microsoft rewards in Croatia

              please add this promotion in Croatia as well, it is just irritating to have this on the side counting points that we could never redeem, or use and knowing that other countries do.
              or bring it here as well, or just remove the feature ...

              • translator vertical languages

                Need a way to translate languages that are not horizontal. See pics of Japanese signs in Osaka. Some of the signs are vertical. A lot of Chinese signs are also like that (in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan). There is not even a way to tell translator to read vertically, then from right to left.

                    • Canada Product Parity compared to US:

                      Hoping that Canadian clients that wants to extend their campaigns into the US can also experience the same level of US feature functionality.

                      For example, call extension allows Skype forwarding in the US which leads to richer tracking and insights. This functionality only works for Accounts set up with business location as US. for Canadian accounts that creates a new account to advertise in the US, we can only advertise on mobile instead of cross screens with Skype. Thanks!

                            • when in another country, bing doesn't follow the profile selected language, instead always stay in the local country search

                              My profile say "US/English", but i'm temporary based in China. The issue is that every time i visit bing, it goes to the china version, and even clicking again on language/country selection, i still get stuck in the china version of bing.

                                        • Bing search algorithm in my case cyrillic

                                          Hello i am from Bulgaria and when searching something in Cyrillic the results are messed with Russian, Ukrainian and other Cyrillic typing countries.
                                          We all know that Bing know our location thank to Bing Maps, so is it possible to use this location and Bing to prioritize the results. This is the most annoying think using Bing, searching something in Bulgarian and the results are most of the time Russian websites.
