Bing Desktop Wallpaper Saver

1 post in this topic

I realize this is a bit niche, but useful nonetheless. This is a script that saves the daily wallpaper from the Bing Desktop application.

It checks to see if Bing Desktop is installed, checks to see if an image has been downloaded by the application, then attempts to copy it, checking to see if the image has already been saved, in which case it offers to overwrite the image.

$dest = @UserProfileDir & "\Pictures\BingWallpaper " & @MON & "-" & @MDAY & "-" & @YEAR & ".jpg"
;Check that Bing Desktop is installed
$check = FileExists(@ProgramFilesDir & "\Microsoft\BingDesktop\")
If $check = True Then
saveimage()
Else
MsgBox(1, "Error", "Bing Desktop is not installed.")
