Microsoft preloads its new Bing app onto the Windows 8 Start screen, tempting you to click it every time you need to search the Web. Though it’s very attractive, the dedicated app has a huge usability problem that’s sure to confuse many users. After you get your list of results and click on one, the app sends you to Internet Explorer to load the page. If you go to hit the back button in IE to return to your list of results, you’ll find that it doesn’t work and you need to switch back to the Bing app to see your results again.
Rather than running the Bing search app, you can create a Bing tile which simply launches the search engine in IE and lets you perform your queries. Simply navigate the Modern UI version of IE 10 to Bing.com, click the Pin button, select Pin to Start and then click the Pin to Start button in the dialog box that appears.
The Bing shortcut will appear on your Start screen where it will take you directly to the Bing home page in your browser.
If you prefer to search with Google, you can pin that site instead.
