Windows 7: How can I get Bing to stay logged in?

How can I get Bing to stay logged in?

OK, Bing is not part of Windows per se, but it must use some Windows mechanism to remember the user is logged in. The trouble is every day I return to my computer and have to login to Bing again, though it seems to remember me during the day. How can I get it to remember day to day?

I don't believe that can be done. I'm thinking after so much time of inactivity Bing logs you off.

Is it really that big of a problem to log in once a day?

Hang in there, others might have something to help you.

Well, if were just one login, it's a nuisance, but when it's on every browser profile of each notebook and VM I run each day, we are talking perhaps an order of magnitude bigger problem than you might have envisioned.

PS
Here's an nice TED talk I send people when talking about how software designers don't imagine how something will be used. This guy has a story about a bank that didn't think negative dollar amounts would be transferred. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwJyKmCbOws

It peeves me when engineers are lazy about providing a good user experience. It annoys me that Bing won't stay connected while other web services actually manage to do it right.

PPS
When I said every profile, I mean think about Chrome, it's one browser, but you can run many profiles on just that browser alone. I can't think of a windows env. where I don't have at least three browsers too. Win 10 - Edge (native) IE (because lots of apps support IE but not Chrome or Edge), Chrome (mostly because of the various profiles.)

And I run multiple notebooks side by side. FYI, I find InputDirector a valuable tool to use a single mouse and keyboard across it all fairly seemlessly.
