    Cool Set Daily Bing Wallpaper Desktop Slideshow In Windows 7

    No matter what you think of Bing as a search engine, you have to admit that the daily homepage photos are pretty cool. They range from amazing nature photos to holiday sensitive events. Those images now have a new use, being wallpapers for your Windows 7 PC. One of Windows 7's lesser know features is the ability to download new wallpapers via a RSS feed.

    By using the code below, you can create a live daily updating bing theme.
    To create the theme, 1st copy and paste the code below in notepad and save it as "Bing.theme"



    [[Theme]
    DisplayName=Bing
    [Slideshow]
    Interval=1800000
    Shuffle=1
    RssFeed=http://feeds.feedburner.com/bingimages
    [Control Panel\Desktop]
    TileWallpaper=0
    WallpaperStyle=0
    Pattern=
    [Control Panel\Cursors]
    AppStarting=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_working.ani
    Arrow=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_arrow.cur
    Crosshair=
    Hand=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_link.cur
    Help=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_helpsel.cur
    IBeam=
    No=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_unavail.cur
    NWPen=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_pen.cur
    SizeAll=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_move.cur
    SizeNESW=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_nesw.cur
    SizeNS=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_ns.cur
    SizeNWSE=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_nwse.cur
    SizeWE=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_ew.cur
    UpArrow=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_up.cur
    Wait=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_busy.ani
    DefaultValue=Windows Aero
    Link=
    [VisualStyles]
    Path=%SystemRoot%\resources\themes\Aero\Aero.mssty les
    ColorStyle=NormalColor
    Size=NormalSize
    ColorizationColor=0X6B74B8FC
    Transparency=1
    [MasterThemeSelector]
    MTSM=DABJDKT

    After you save it, just double click on the theme. file and make sure you select "download attachments" in the pop-up window.
    That's it, your bing theme should be good to go. To make sure the photos look their best, select the "Fit" option in the desktop background settings.

    Default Bing Wallpapers on desktop

    Actually we get wallpapers of more than 1 country and they are redundant.

    It is amazing how much useless stuff they can invent to chew up your system resources. I think I spend about 1% of my up-time on the desktop. Why would I want to have a rolling desktop picture - it would probably make me nervous.
