Apps / Software :: How To Prevent (this App Needs To Update) / Xbox Music

I was wondering, am I able to use the Applocker to prevent this from occurring? I can sadly not give a screeny of this... because if the message appears, there seems to be no way to get rid of it, but making a new local account?

Apps / Software :: Xbox With Music On 2nd Drive

Nov 2, 2012

The xbox music app for Windows 8 will not show any of the music in my library. I have narrowed it down to the fact the all my music on a 2nd hard drive.

If I move a couple of songs to the c drive and add that folder to my library, they will show up. However nothing in my library that is on the 2nd hard drive will show up.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8 - How To Get Music Files To Be Seen In Xbox

Feb 23, 2014

Windows 8. New build I have. I am running windows 8 off of a SSD, and have a new HDD that I bought for everything else. I recently transferred my music over from an external HD and now when I attempt to find them in my Xbox app I can't seem to select that drive. It only sees my SSD, and I do not want to install music on that. How do I make it so my apps pull files right from that drive?

Apr 11, 2014

I've got a windows 8.1 tablet (Asus VivoTab Smart) And am wanting to play music from it to my Xbox One using spotify However at the moment there is not a spotify app (there is spotlight but its pretty bad)

My device is running the full windows 8.1 so i have the actual spotify program installed and can play music from it on my tablet, but can't seem to stream it to devices, and recieve the error message "you can only play from apps"

Is there any workaround to this so i can play to devices from a windows application or even a way of linking my spotify to an app or am i out of luck?

Apps / Software :: Xbox Music App Causes Runtime Broker High RAM

Aug 18, 2014

I have been reading up on the Runtime Broker using high RAM, it is just this one app that does it

My Laptop has 4GB of RM and normal use it sits at around 40% to 50% used

When I launch Xbox Music app, runtime broker RAM usage increase until it gets to about 2.5 GB (95% RAM used), it then stays like this for a long time causing my machine to go slow, eventually this will drop to about 800MB and everything runs fine (but this is still far too much RAM being used)

I do not have this problem when running any other app

I have tried a reinstall and also disabled live tile (believe live tiles can cause this) is there a cache directory for music I can delete to see if it makes any difference.

I am on slow BB so don't want to do another re install as I takes 2 days to re download all my music pass content.

No Album Art In Music Library Or Xbox Music?

May 31, 2013

I recently migrated to Windows 8. My music collection stumbled along the way and I had to re-fetch artwork for a few albums in WMP. I also set it up in iTunes. My default app for MP3s is WMP. As you can see below, artwork only appears when in the folder view (which somewhat defeats the purpose of libraries in the first place). I'd prefer to sort them by artist, with album art displayed without a folder, as it should and as it did in Windows 7.

Art appears in folder view but not artist or album view.

On a related note, I recently added many new MP3s to my collection. When I opened Xbox Music for the first time afterwards, it seemed to be downloading art to add it to my older albums, all of which have art. Then the process was somehow interrupted. I believe I closed the app. Then, when I opened it again, none of them had art.

Can Prevent Windows 8.1 Pro Update 1 From Creating Username-based Account

May 22, 2014

I like to make my own custom Username for any Windows installation. However, Windows 8.1 Pro will simply create a Username for me based on my Microsoft account and that Username is just not tidy enough for me with dashes and not something cool and it doesn't ask me whether I want to type one up myself. The only way I found to prevent that from happening is disconnecting from the internet or disabling NIC in BIOS. Is there another way of doing so?

Apps / Software :: How To Prevent Modern Apps Connecting Internet

Oct 10, 2013

I offten play game online, and my network is not fast. So when I playing game, it's usually "lag". I think it is because the modern apps (mail, people, weather...) and other background services auto connect to internet. I can stop or turn off these background services, but I don't know how to turn off or prevent modern apps do that to improve the network speed.

Apps / Software :: Any Way To Prevent Apps From Remaining Open

Dec 10, 2013

I found that whenever I open an app, such as 'Reader' they remain open even after I switch to something else. I know I could close them by swiping the upper left of the screen and select 'Close'.

Is there a way to have them close altogether when I'm done with them?

Audio :: Microsoft Music Update - Loss Of Control Panel Functions

Apr 9, 2013

Until earlier today I could 'rewind' 15 seconds on the MS Music Control Panel. Having 'updated' the App this functionality has been lost. You can either rewind to the start or the end. You have to use the slider if you want to rewind less. For transcribing a multi-hour interview that is in .wma format this is now highly inconvenient.

How I can retrieve a 15 second shift button again?

Apps / Software :: How To Prevent SmartGlass From Auto-Installing

Aug 28, 2013

Windows 8 seems to detect my Xbox 360 and it automatically installs the SmartGlass app. While I quite like what SmartGlass can do, I have no need for it. If I uninstall it, it will just auto-install again next time I use my 360. How can I prevent this from happening?

Apps / Software :: Windows 8 Laptop - How To Prevent Automatic Downloads

Jun 29, 2014

I have just bought a new laptop which came with Windows 8 preinstalled. I have since updated to 8.1 Pro with Media Center and so far, touch wood, things appear to be running well.

Having used Windows 7 for ages, I found the change to 8 somewhat difficult but I am slowly figuring it out. There will undoubtedly be things I cannot sort for myself but straight off the bat I have one question:

Where can I change a setting to stop in 8.1 from automatically going on line and downloading stuff I don't want? I do not want to prevent automatic downloading of Windows Updates etc, but I have just turned on and been greeted with a message telling me that Windows has downloaded 9 new apps - Alarms, Calculator, Food & Drink, Health & Fitness, Tips, Reading List, Scan, Sound Recorder, Bing Desktop, and MS Silverlight (yes, I know, this is 10!)

I particularly want to keep this new Laptop free of unnecessary software which I will never use, basically all I want is Word, Excel, email capability, the ability to view TV (when away from home, hence the upgrade to 'Pro with Media Center') but little else. I will soon be abandoning my home cable internet connection and will be relying on a much reduced plan and so will not want the limited data used up because the O/S automatically loads the computer with rubbish.

Apps / Software :: Xbox Video App Won't Download Purchased Movie

Feb 12, 2014

I have a dell venue pro. I rented a movie on the pre-installed video app (xbox). I opted to download the movie so I can watch it remotely. I got a download error because of low disc space. The c drive is low on memory but I have a completely empty microsd card with more then enough room for the movie. How can I make the app download onto the msd card instead of the main drive? The app itself has no such option in the settings. I've tried to change the pathway but the app still seems to want to download the the c drive first.

Sep 15, 2014

I had recently replaced my HDD with SSD, So I had backed up & erased all the personal files including music, videos etc from respective folders, Actually there is no files other than system files, programs, softwares in the SSD now, I had done disk cleanup, defrag , clearing of temp, prefetch folders etc before starting the cloning everything from HDD to SSD,

After replacement, now I could see all my collection of songs/music in the Now Playing section of Music App (Modern app), No music files are actually present for me to locate in any of the folders when I go through for explorer,

I'm not able to play the music files by clicking it from Music App , & when I delete it from there by right clicking it - temporarily goes away but returns when i close the App and opens it again..

I had unchecked & checked the indexing option in the Music folder (File Explorer) - properties & restarted system, checked, But still all the music files are listed in the App, how to clear the music file listings from the Music app permanently which are not really present in the system?

Audio :: Music Apps Seem To Play Tracks In WRONG Order

Sep 15, 2014

I seem to have some Audio files that whatever I do seem always to play in the order 1,10, 11...2,20,21... etc instead of 1,2,3,.. etc

I've got the file names in the correct sequence -- it only happens on a few albums bit it's mega annoying since if I'm playing an Audiobook in a Car I obviously want the tracks to be in the CORRECT sequence.

Here's an example of what a music app shows the order - and from MP3Vtag you can see the filenames are in the correct sequence.

Audio :: Popup For Pause / Volume Controls In Metro Music Apps

Feb 6, 2013

I want the volume popup bar with the track title information for Windows Media Player, is this possible, perhaps with a registry edit?

I mainly notice it in gMusic app and I've seen the Pandora app have it as well (Whenever I hit the pause button, it will pop up with album art, artist and track info as well as a volume slider) ...

I mainly use Windows Media Player for music though so I'd like this cool feature for that program, it would be very handy when I'm playing a game and I don't want to alt+tab out just to see what song is playing ...
