  1. New headlines on front page rather than a big picture.

    Rather than a full size picture, the front page it would be more useful if I could default to the News tab or other tab.

    • Bing Currency Exchange

      When you type in a question about a currency exchange rate, bing would pull it up for you automatically. Example: $150 US Dollars to Australian Dollars exchange.

        • Shade the advertisements in the result page to a colour to better distinguished it from non-advertisement results

          The title says it all. As it stands now, one cannot easily distinguished between advertisements and non-adverts which can be annoying at times.

          • The related searches shouldnt move around so much on mobile devices. It should stay in one place so you dont have to hunt for it so much.

            • Medical Specific Search Catagory

              I work in the medical field and use Bing quite often for my day to day searches, but often find that when I am looking up anything that has to do with the Medical Field, it can be 4 or 5 results down the list and I have to dig to find answers.

              It would be nice if there were a search that were geared toward medical terminology to enhance the quality and refine the specificity of the results that appear.

                • Make the bing app more like internet explorer.

                  I would love to use the bing app on my android phone as my default web browser so that I can use bing search but the way the app is now it is too hard to navigate websites. Why not integrate a mobile internet explorer into the bing search app so that people can really use bing away from home.

                  • Allow site specific shopping results

                    Let us rank specific sites when searching for products to always be listed first. This would be a 'toggle' setting to turn on or off and perhaps there could be multiple types. For example, a sporting goods list, toys, technology etc.... This would allow me to list local retailers or preferred online retailers and they would always be at the top of the list of responses.

                        • Search Advertisements

                          When I need a handyman, a mechanic or some specialists, I'm having hard time weeding out the many search results. It will be nice to just search for anyone who is currently advertising their services and narrow it down by location. Kind of looking through a classified section of your newspaper or flyers from mail... but better

                            • News Area on Windows Phone in all countries

                              On my Windows Phone (Lumia 830, denim) I have unlike to Desktop search no news area in search. There is only a news app, which is very slow when searching for different news topics.
                              And starting an app is not as convinient as a direct integration in bing search. I don't know if there are countries with news integrated in bing search, but in the German Windows Phone version there is no news area in bing search.

                                • Allow users to search for an address and then save it to either one note or send it to their windows phone

                                  It would be nice to be able to access my previous search results on other devices. An example would be looking up a restaurant address on my tablet or desktop and then accessing the results on my windows phone to drive there later.

                                  • 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.

                                    • Don't force secure search and block organic keyword data.

                                      According to the rumours, Bing is planning to follow Google in making all searches "secure":
                                      http://searchenginewatch.com/sew/news/2322665/bing-begins-rollout-of-secure-search-say-goodbye-to-more-keyword-data

                                      I think this is a bad idea as both a user and a webmaster.
                                      The reason Google says they do it is for user "security" but users are not insecure just because the web has general knowledge of keyword data - but I think that is a lie and it's really just about locking up keyword data for monopolization purposes. I have no way of knowing who specifically searches for specific keywords currently with unencrypted bing searches and hence there is no "security" issues…

                                        Hi, thanks for the suggestion. We will pass this on to the team and let you know when we have an update. Please do keep submitting other ideas to make Bing a great product! Thanks.

                                      • Add HELP info/examples ( like SQL Server,Windows,Powershell,Office,.NET,C# etc) & also Tech Blogger's websites article directly into Bing.

                                        I have seen many developers are still using Google, even if they are working on Micriosft Technologies. So if someone has some problem in SQL Server and dev wants to use BING, but he is ending up going to google, becuase google offer more result from different different websites. Try to put at least all of your owen products technical stuff
                                        (HELP) info/example data into BING.

                                        • Group all MS/BING apps under one icon

                                          Like google, collapse all apps under one icon which will expand to list all the Microsoft or Bing apps ; This as well should be available in all the pages so user has ease of access.

                                          currently If I have go to my outlook I need go to homepage, that's really crazy bad.
