If you’ve ever had to create a QR code but didn’t know how, Microsoft has an easy-to-use tool available in any web browser via the Bing search engine. Here’s how to use it.
First, open your web browser and type bing.com in your address bar to visit the Bing website. At the moment, this trick only works in desktop browsers.
In the Bing search box, type “generate qr code” and press Enter.
In the results, scroll down until you see the in-line QR generation box.
Click on the text entry box and type what you want to save in the QR code. Usually it is a web link, but QR codes can also be used for other types of information depending on the application.
Then you can double check the code by scanning it with your favorite device. If it works, you can save the QR code as an image file on your local computer by right-clicking the QR code and selecting “Save As” in your browser.
After that, share the image of the QR code as you like. You can even print it. Fun and easy!
