It's always useful to be able to search the web quickly and efficiently. If you use Bing, or if you want to consider trying it, the Bing Desktop utility is the easiest way to do so.
The Bing Desktop, a freeware program from Microsoft, puts a search box on your Windows desktop so you can quickly search the web with the Bing search engine from wherevever you happen to be on your computer. The program also configures your Windows wallpaper so that it loads a stunning background photo from Microsoft, which automatically changes on a regular basis. If you prefer not to have your desktop wallpaper changed (I prefer a plain blue, but maybe I'm old-fashioned), you can choose to opt out of that part.
Bing Desktop is a 10 MB download and https://www.bing.com/explore/desktop is the place to head for the download. It's malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust.
