    If you notice the I with the circle that shows up on some machines and not others and I cant seem to find out anything about it or find ANY setting in the bing desktop that enables or disables it? Anyone?

    Hello Machistmo,

    Is this for the Bing Desktop? If so, then you might see if it may be part of the wallpaper toolset.

    Hope this helps,

    thanks man - that was not there as part of the last update and still is not on the version in the lab. the toolset toggle option I mean not the toolset. I like it I just wish they were a little more cohesive.

    See the attached. I started to just paste it into mspaint after an ALT PRTSRN but I noticed that it just looked cut off. So I pasted a screen in showing it missing on a box at the office. I mean I'm not saying I'm not crazy, but not about this 1.3.328.0v

    You could use PRTSCRN by itself to capture the whole screen, then crop it in Paint instead.

    Yea that's what I did after I noticed it looked like I just cut off the bottom option, so everyone could see the menu as a whole. I am tired and lazy and RDP'd into a box at work and should be sleeping. notice the version added and it IS missing the toolset option, see not crazy, about this anyway .

    LOL, I hear you.

    I'm surprised you have the wallpaper toolset since it's not in your Bing Desktop settings yet. The toolset is a feature of the Bing Desktop 1.3.395.0 version. Strange.

    No no that's the thing - all installed in the same lab same day - some got the above version and others the newer with the toolset. I have 4 machines here with recently (more recently than 3 weeks) installed Bing Desktop applications that are the 328 version and that don't have the toolset and have others that had it installed months ago that mysteriously updated and have the toolset. Its just odd.

    Ah, I see now. Yeah, I haven't figured out why some get one version while others get the new version either yet.
