Bing Homepage Quiz Not Working in My Web Browser
If you use Microsoft’s Bing search engine for searching on Internet, you might be aware of its “Bing Homepage Quiz” feature which is also known by many other names such as “Bing Weekly Quiz”, “Bing Weekly Trends Quiz”, “Bing America Quiz”, etc.
What is Bing Homepage Quiz?
This Quiz feature of Bing search was introduced in 2016 to test your knowledge. It asks the visitor 3 trivia questions about the image which is shown as the background on Bing homepage and changes everyday. It is called image of the day of Bing search.
To access the Quiz feature, you need to find its icon on Bing homepage. Previously a graduation cap icon was shown on the background image on Bing homepage to access the homepage quiz feature. But now the icon has been replaced by a new “Q” icon.
The “Q” icon is not always visible. It’s hidden by default and we need to find it using Hotspot feature of Bing homepage. Just move your mouse cursor over different places on the background image on Bing homepage and the “Q” icon will appear somewhere on the image. It’s called the hotspot feature of Bing homepage.
When you find the “Q” icon, hover mouse cursor over it and Bing will display the homepage quiz fly-out. It shows the first question about the image of the day.
You get 3 options to select as the correct answer. Click on the desired option and Bing will open a new page to show the result. On the next page, Bing shows a button “Next question” to give a chance to answer the second question. Same thing happens again with the second question. All questions are related to each other. After answering all 3 questions, you can click on “Get your score” button to know how many reward points did you earn. You can redeem the points by joining Microsoft Rewards program for free.
