Explore the Bing homepage

Bing always strives to bring you more, and our homepage is no exception. We offer a new image every day to help you explore the world around you. The homepage loads in stages so that the image never gets in the way of your ability to search.

Ever wanted to know more about the pictures?

If you have a little time to spend and want to explore the day’s image, point your mouse around it until you find a hotspot:

Hidden in the image, hotspots are intended to intrigue and inform you. If you look, you’ll find four of them every day. Each gives you a chance to find out more about the subject of the image.

Want just the facts?

If you just want to know where the picture was taken, point to the copyright symbol to see a brief caption about the image, as well as the photographer’s name and agency.

Did you miss one?

If you missed a day or just want to see it again, click the arrows at the bottom right of the screen to scroll through the past seven days of homepages. You can interact with each page just as you could when it originally appeared. And to go back even farther, check out the Bing homepage Visual Search gallery.

  • I rahter like a proper inlink query in your bing api when you take over yahoo site explorer. Any news about that?

  • Kees, I don't think Bing is going to take over Yahoo Siteexplorer, I read somewhere that Yahoo were gonna keep that service!

  • I use the image explorer every day. It's great. In fact I BING for everything. Thanks.
