      • Love your wallpaper. Make the older ones easier to browse! Or reward us for going through several of one theme!

        I've always loved the wallpapers you make available. Could you possibly make the older ones easier to browse? Or reward us for going through several new ones of a single theme? I'd be much happier exploring that than some of the other options you post.

              • Ability to Disable Popular Now

                There needs to be an easy way, for example a top level setting, to disable the Popular Now feature that works even after deleting all history and is browser-independent. In particular (and of course!) it needs to work for IE11 and Edge. In addition, based on what some other users are saying, you should provide another setting to disable the Bing background image. But please make these two settings independent of each other since some users (including me) like the background image but NOT the tabloid stuff shown in Popular Now.

                • I would mind seeing images from trending items in the news and entertainment as the Bing daily image it could even change during a day.

                  Changing the Bing image to trending current events in news and entertainment. It be instead of the kind of images we see now daily or alternative. For example gladioulos on Monday and Kim and Kanye Tuesday, Top news story of the day Wednesday or do all three images of throughout the day.

                    Hello, thanks for the suggestion. We feature event/holiday images frequently. Did you see the International Women’s Day photo? We featured the Niagara Falls when they froze over last winter. Please stay tuned for more. Thanks and keep your ideas coming!

                  • Help me get rid of "Make Bing my homepage" on bing.com

                    On bing.com right next to the rewards button and user image/sign-in is "Make Bing my homepage". I am tired of seeing that!

                    Bing.com is already my homepage, I set it up myself manually via Internet Options. I even clicked on that "Make Bing my homepage" link quite a few times and ran that little program hoping that would finally make that message go away but it constantly shows up! Since Bing.com is already my homepage that message should ever been seen by me.

                    • Erase the media at the bottom of the HOME page

                      I find the media at the bottom of BING consistently distasteful. I come to BING to literally just get lost in a cool picture, and I find that the media at the bottom absolutely ruins the experience. It is very intrusive when I actually want to get away, stare at a picture, and remember the day by it. In addition, if you are now partners with YAHOO! why are you following features of their brand? It seems that differentiation might help business pursuits. If yahoo is busy, BING should be the Vacation. Keep it clean and simple

                        Thank you for the input. We aim to strike a balance between beauty and usefulness for all items that make up the page. We consider this balance on every designer iteration we make.
                        There are two ways we give the use an option to select the level of minimalism that works best for them:
                        First, there is a small arrow at the top-left of the Popular Now carousel. This arrow can position the carousel in a “Full”, “Minimized” or “Hidden” state.
                        Second, there is an option available if you prefer a completely blank homepage. Check out the steps in this Help article under “Turn the image off and on”

                        One DISTINCT feature missing from Bing.com Dashboard is "Time based search". this is useful for searching current affairs.

                        I have sent this as feedback on bing web page as well. Feedback on homepage is a good idea but how does Microsoft know & identify the person suggesting the idea ?

                          Hi, you can do this today. From the Bing homepage, conduct a search. From the Search results page, select the Any time dropdown to narrow the results to Past 24 hours, past week or past month.

                          We are also adding a custom date filter. See this idea for more information: https://binglistens.uservoice.com/forums/283355-ideas/suggestions/7173901-enable-filtering-of-search-results-by-custom-date.

                          Please do keep sending us your great ideas! Thanks.

                        • No pictures of bugs!

                          There are people who are greatly bothered by up close pictures of bugs. Every so often, the Bing background features macro photographs of insects. For example, July 15 in the United States, the extreme close up image of a bee’s eye was disturbing. People who have Entomophobia can suffer increased stress, anxiety, and debilitating panic attacks.

                          There is so much beauty in nature, so it baffles me that Bing would choose the face of an insect.

                          Having worked on accessibility at Microsoft for many years, I know that Bing takes steps to avoid flashing images that can trigger seizures in…

                            Hi Charles

                            Thank you for taking the time to provide input about the Homepage picture with the bee. We are aware that some images (especially bug or animal related images) create an emotional reaction in a set of users. Sometimes it is uncomfortable. Sometimes, users do report that they didn’t use the homepage for the rest of the day because they were uncomfortable with the image.
                            For some people, it does make them pause and make them look closer. There are always going to be conflicting preferences about images from person to person. Variety is important, but we definitely hear you :-)

                            Please do continue using Bing and providing ideas for new Bing features.

                          • Offensive Home page Displays

                            Political statements and material that is clearly very offensive to some religions should never be posted on the Bing homepage. The pro gay information on the Bing home page today is totally unacceptable and there is no reason why you should attempt to offend so many people.

                              Hi everyone,

                              Thank you for sharing your feedback. This photo was chosen for the Bing homepage to acknowledge the historic US Supreme Court decision to recognize the civil rights of same sex couples who choose to marry. The date fell on the same weekend as the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, and on the weekend many communities across America and around the world choose to celebrate Pride weekend. 2015 marks the 45th anniversary of Pride Celebrations in the US and 45 years of fighting for LGBT visibility, dignity, and equality. We wanted to celebrate the progress of this movement in the same spirit we choose photos for other significant dates and holidays for the Bing Homepage.

                            • Make special events (holidays, anniversaries, etc) make Bing more special or festive.

                              I feel like holidays and other events aren't quite festive enough. I know the homepage has a special picture but what if we got more things like special games, rewards, and more. Also you could resign Bing for a single day for each holiday so it looks more festive

                                Hi Mark

                                Thanks for the feedback, which we have passed on to our Homepage team. We do try and accommodate different users’ likes and dislikes the best we can. In fact, speaking of the special events which you mentioned, we are happy to let you know of a new Birthday feature which you will be able to experience if you are logged in on your birthday. Please let your friends and family know that as well, so they can experience the same. :-)

                                Under "Download todays image" Could you add an option which says "Automatically download the new Bing image every day" Allowing us users to select a place to download the image(s) every day for example to, the downloads folder. By adding this feature it allows users like me to stop going to Bing to download the new Bing image every day. it just one less task to-do in windows.
