Bing Desktop for Windows 7

Bing Desktop is available for computers that are running Windows 7. Bing Desktop can be installed from the optional updates section in Windows Update. Bing Desktop provides an automatic update of the Windows Desktop background image to the Bing home page image each day. In addition, Bing Desktop offers an easy to access yet unobtrusive search box to streamline searching without opening the browser.

Tip: you can do a right mouse click and change the settings so that it docks on top of your screen. Only if your mouse reaches the top screen border it becomes visible.

Windows 7, you just made my day

Short history: I have some memory card slots in my laptop and the drivers never worked. Not in Windows XP, Vista or 7. Suddenly I received an alert from the Action Center telling me that there is an old driver available that has been updated.

action center windows 7


So I downloaded this driver just by clicking the link (didn’t have to search in the jungle of Acer drivers on their site).

thanks windows 7

And here is the result:

thanks windows 7 p2


thanks windows 7 p3

Thanks Windows 7! Without this automatic check I would never have known that there was an old updated driver version available.

I really tried all drivers available for my laptop and they never worked or were not compatible. So I gave up on this and said to myself “ah, not so bad it’s only one memory card slot that doesn’t work”. But hey! now it works (after 4 years?) :D  😀

P.S.: Thanks Acer for fixing and updating that old driver 😉
