  • Wallpapers are gathered from the localized Bing search sites: en-US, en-UK, en-AU, en-NZ, en-CA, de-DE, zh-CN, ja-JP.
  • Files are named using their long descriptions and automatically translated to the language of the users choice if needed through the Bing API.
  • Each file is hashed to ensure that there are no duplicates downloaded.
  • Files will be switched on a timer or manually by double clicking on the thumbnail.
  • If in a remote (RDP) session the wallpaper switching is disabled. The wallpaper switching is also disabled if the monitor is powered off or disconnected.
