Windows 7: Today, Bing UK is showing a swimming whale (?) in icy waters

I admit it doesn't have some of the very advanced license search options, but the rest is there. I still use google for very very deep searches for this reason, but advanced search for most things are about equal options-wise on both. Also, most of the options in the advanced search dialogs are also modifiers on the search itself, and as such can simply be entered into the search box with the search terms (as we used to do many years ago) and that way works as well.

I personally don't like Bing or any other search Engine other than Google considering Bing was copying Google's Search Results in the past.

Google is just simple and easy (except you have to click the Logo to toggle between Images, and Videos etc, I preferred it how it was

With all due respect my friend, my experiences in life teaches me that there are no good and bad guys in business or politics; they are ALL out to make a profit; morals and ethics are like fool's gold - what you see is not what you get.

If you want to see a world that is divided between good guys and bad guys then I suggest you try Hollywood.

You posted a screen shot of Bing "advanced". How do I find the page? Also, the ability to fill in separate blanks for "or" and "exact" simultaneously with the default "and" seems to be missing.

Ron, you have to type in the search term first. When the screen changes to the next page, right up on top (just to the right of "All Results") you'll see the "Advanced" link.

Thanks, found it. As I said it's useless to me compared to the Google Advanced search. I often search for say, and error message "blah blah de blah" but I want to look for it only in posts that also contain Windows 7 or Outlook. So Google Advanced lets me fill in the approprate blanks so I don't have to manually type in a bunch of ANDs ORs and "s in one box.
