It’s not a huge update or even headline catching news in the grand scheme of things. But if you are among those who love the beautiful wallpapers Bing puts up as its background on the homepage, you would appreciate this one. The Bing homepage is one of the distinctive features of the search engine from Microsoft, and something that glaringly separates it from the staid minimal interface of its chief rival. According to the Bing blog, the ability to download the backgrounds has been an oft requested feature. Bing has answered with a nod.
Bing now gives you an easy way to download the image with a click on a download icon that’s placed on the right hand side of the screen. Bing asks you to click on the download button, connect to Facebook, and then proceed to download the image to your computer. You can also view the image in full-screen mode by clicking on the icon with the intersecting arrows.
Remember, the download option is localized for the U.S. You won’t be able to see the download icon elsewhere. But that can be easily circumvented by going into the Settings and changing the location to United States. Also, do pay heed to any copyright the image comes with. You can click on the icon with the ‘i’ to find more about the image.
