If there is one website that I manually visit every day (other than Into Windows and Google, of course) it is Bing search’s homepage. Every morning, as soon as I turn my desktop computer on, I open Bing search homepage in one of my web browsers to start my day by seeing a beautiful picture.
If you often visit the Bing search homepage just to see the featured image, then I am sure that you have tried downloading featured images at least once. As you know, the homepage doesn’t let you download featured image and when you right-click on the image featured on the homepage, you don’t get an option to save the image.
While there are tens of free tools out there to automatically download Bing homepage pictures to your PC, you can legally download them from the official Bing homepage gallery.
I am not sure since when Bing is letting users to download high-resolution (1920 x 1200) images featured on the homepage but we can now download high-quality images that have been featured on Bing’s homepage by visiting the official Bing homepage gallery page.
The beauty of this gallery is that you can easily sort featured images based on color, place, and region. In order to download a featured image, simply click on it to view larger size of the picture with brief information. Here, you can click on the small download button located lower-right corner of the page to see the image in full-resolution. Finally, right-click on it and then click Save picture option to download the same. If you want to have the selected picture as desktop background, click Set as desktop background option that appears when your right-click on the image.
And if you want to automatically set the current Bing homepage picture as your Windows desktop background, you can download the official Bing Desktop client. The desktop client also lets you search Bing right from, well, your desktop.
