Bing Wallpaper

Keep your wallpaper up to date with Bing's image of the day, every day.

Usage

Build yourself

  • Grab the code
git clone https://github.com/kompiuter/bing-wallpaper.git
  • Open .sln file in Visual Studio

  • Build

  • Run

.../BingWallpaper/bin/Release/BingWallpaper.exe

Binary

Download from Softpedia

What does this do?

Running the application will create a background process that changes your desktop background to Bing's image of the day, repeating every 24 hours.

It adds a key to the registry so that it is run on startup.

A tray icon is visible while the application is running (thanks @MichaelMK) which provides the ability to:

  • View wallpaper source
  • Force wallpaper update
  • Save wallpaper as image
  • Disable launch on startup

Uninstall

Disable startup launch through the tray icon and then delete the executable.

You may also disable startup launch by either of these ways:

  • Going to your registry (regedit in Run) and deleting the key BingWallpaper under: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

OR

  • Going to Task Manager -> Startup and disabling BingWallpaper.

Compatibility

This only works on Windows systems.

I've tested it on Windows 7 and Windows 10 as an admin user. If you face any problems please open an issue!
