Microsoft has just announced that their Bing Desktop app has hit version 1.1, where this new version of the app will deliver support for Windows 8 devices as well as being able to handle a quartet of additional languages including French, German, Chinese and Japanese. Apart from that, Bing Desktop v1.1 will let you sift through the previous 9 days’ worth of images in order to set a favorite image as your Windows Desktop Background, or you could just spend the time to check out images from days when you were away from the computer.

Since Bing Desktop carries the “Bing” name, it makes perfect sense for it to deliver a fast and simple route in order for you to obtain search results. Prior to searching, all you need to do is to click on the Bing taskbar icon (the Bing tile on your Windows 8 Start screen will also do), and the search bar will appear automatically in front of the screen. Key in a search term or phrase via the autosuggest keywords or your search history, and voila! Search results will appear in your default browser. Anyone given Bing Desktop 1.1 a go yet, and how do you find it?
