Say what you will about Microsoft’s Bing search engine, its landing page has some visually stunning background images daily. And with a free app from the Windows Store, you can add those images to your Windows 8 and Windows RT Lock Screen.
Bing my Lockscreen
You can already customize the Lock Screen in Windows 8 and RT a bit through system settings. You can do things like add your own background images and select which apps display info. The Bing my lockscreen app allows you to set the daily Bing image as your Lock Screen background.
It offers the eight most recent Bing images, which you can set of your Lock Screen manually. You can download the image to your local drive as well.
In Settings, you can set the app to automatically update your Lock Screen to Bing’s image of the day. And you can select an image from different regions of the world.
If you go into Windows 8 or RT Settings, you’ll have the option to set the Bing images on your Lock Screen too.
