Hi, André,

I can not influence the way / frequency with which the images are changed on the desktop. I am OK with that, however clicking "refresh" does nothing, the image is still the same. Maybe a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks!

Using Windows 10 Pro 17074 (english ver.)

Hi,

It's not a bug (I hope). If the same image is found on the server Bing, the refresh technically does nothing. Maybe it should give some feedback.

Do this test, get a new image and hit refresh after. Nothing happens (it's the same image). Now change the desktop wallpaper manually to another image, then hit refresh. The original image of the day should be set again.

Any additional thoughts?

Thanks,

Hi, well, maybe it is just confusing, my mistake. I thought refresh will change the current image to something new :-)

So... basically I was looking for a way to change the wallpaper once I am tired of it and want to see something new. The problem is, my computer rarely gets turned off or restarted :-)

Anyway, I like your program very much!

Hi,

BingSnap gets the daily image from the Bing Servers, it should change everyday even if you leave the computer running all the time.

Thanks for your comments,

Hi,

thanks, the daily schedule was not clear for me, now I understand. I will keep an eye on it and will tell you if it is longer.

All the best!
