Hi Benny,


Thank you for choosing Microsoft Office Community and thanks for providing us an opportunity to assist you. By the description, I understand that you do not see the Bing Search in the Word research option.


Let me help you with this. Follow the steps:
1. open Word 2010.
2. Go to File -> Click on Options.
3. Go to Trust Center -> Open Trust Center settings.
4. In the Privacy Options section -> Check Allow the Research task pane to check for and install new services.


Now you may add the service and get the Bing search bar in Word Research option. . If you need further assistance, reply and we will be happy to help you.


Thank You
