Using Bing Wallpaper app: Support for Internet Explorer ended on June 15, 2022, and Microsoft is proposing a replacement browser, called Edge, introduced in 2015, which, in addition to advanced features, displays a new wallpaper image every day, similar to the LockScreen function.

Both apps work similarly, but the Bing Wallpaper app can be installed separately, containing a collection of beautiful images from around the world. Like the application built into Windows, you can see a new desktop image every day.

Quick Tip: It is supported by Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge 74 or later, Chrome and Firefox.

Good to know:

A.) – Bing Wallpaper is installed in the C:\Users \ username \AppData \Local \Microsoft \BingWallpaperApp folder. The images are stored in the WPImages folder.

(Under the username above, enter the computer name (in this example: John John) that you specified during installation).

B.) – AppData is a hidden folder, so if you want to see the content and images, you must first make it visible.

Open a folder on your computer (any) and click the View button in the top menu bar, then click the Show link in the drop-down menu. Finally, in the next small window, click the Hidden items button.
