Prevent (This App Needs To Update) Message In Xbox Music App (Windows 8)?

Sep 3, 2013

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 :: Missing Music In The XBox Music App (Metro)

Nov 28, 2013

Using the Windows 8.1 music app, I have properly setup my library to load from my second HDD, but it only loads 80 artists out of over 120. All my music is properly tagged and in Artist/Year - Album/ folder format.

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.

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?

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.

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?

Attempting Repairs Message After Windows 8.1 Update

Apr 11, 2014

I have a Toshiba Encore, which I updated. When I start it up it has the message 'Preparing Automatic repair', then a black screen and a Windows windows flashes up for a split second. I then get the message 'Diagnosing your PC', the 'Attempting Repairs'.

I then get a blue screen with the title 'Automatic Repair' with the message: Automatic Repair couldnt repair your PC...... Log file C:windowssystem32logfilessrtsrttrail.txt

There are two options 'Shutdown' and 'Advanced options'.

'Advanced options' gives:
Continue'- exit to windows 8.1
'Use a device'
'Turn off your PC'

Troubleshoot gives:
'Refresh your PC'
'Reset your PC'
'Toshiba maintenece'
'Advanced Options'

Advanced Options gives:
'System restore'- ive tried this but there are no restore points
'System image recovery'
'Start up repair'- Tried this, just goes to 'Preparing automatic repair'
'Command prompt'- This works
'UEFI Firmware Settings'
'Start-up Settings'- Tried this, just goes to 'Preparing automatic repair'

So apart from refreshing and resetting which I haven't tried yet, I can get into a Command prompt. The command prompt starts in X:. When I open Notepad and browse the file system i notice that X: is called 'Boot'. I'm wondering whether the 8.1 update has put something on my PC that makes it try to boot from X: instead of C:. Is there any way I can check what drive the PC is trying to boot from?

The log file states
Root cause found: Boot manager failed to find OS loader
Repair action: File repair
Result:failed. Error code 0xa

Repair action: Boot configuratio data store repair
Result:failed. Error code 0x490

Jan 20, 2014

I got a message on my new laptop that Windows was updating and would take 2 days. This was on Friday.

I went back to it yesterday (Sunday), and it says it will restart today.

I've been periodically checking it and I'm still getting the same message.

Is this normal? Can I override it somehow and get into my laptop??

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?

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?

How To Prevent Windows 8 From Doing Background Scanning

Jan 21, 2013

I run this copy of Windows 8 Professional in a virtual machine and every time I leave that VM for just a couple of minutes the OS starts using up an enormous amount of HDD that significantly slows down my host machine. It turns out that Windows 8 begins what they call "Scheduled scan" when there's no user input:


and as soon I switch back to the VM with Windows 8 the HDD "hogging" stops. Obviously this is very annoying!

In light of this, I'd like to ask how to stop this background scanning?

PS. I tried going to the Action Center and schedule maintenance for 3AM or something remote but that doesn't seem to have any effect.

Xbox Games Ads In Windows 8?

Dec 1, 2012

After using Windows 8 on one of my machines, it had become apparent Microsoft is taking a new turn with their operating system. I wondered at first why Windows 8 was so much less expensive than previous versions of Windows. Now it seems clear to me. All the nice games in previous windows are now gone, and if you want games you now have to use metro and Xbox games. If you play the games at all, the big difference is now all the advertisements.

Any way to block these ads, but no luck. Microsoft has even fooled around and made it somewhat difficult to alter the hosts file. Figuring out a way to effectively block the ads ....

How To Prevent Windows 8.1 Booting From Removable Disc

Apr 6, 2014

How do I ensure that nobody can slip in a Windows 7 or 8 disc and reinstall windows on my laptop? I have a BIOS password, but in the boot priority order it doesn't list my disc drive as an option.. Only "Windows Boot Manager"... So I'm unsure as to whether someone can just stick a disc in and reinstall windows.

Reason being is that I had my laptop stolen two months ago. I had tracking software on it (Prey), but the theif never connected to the internet, which is required for the software to work. Which leads me to assume that they just formatted (my win 7) laptop and reinstalled windows straight away. So I'm learning from my mistakes, and wanting to do it right for my new laptop.

How To Prevent Windows 8.1 From Installing Drivers Automatically

May 10, 2014

You can prevent Windows from downloading the latest drivers for whichever device, BUT you can't prevent it from auto-installing drivers that it already has for whichever device. Meaning, the below trick, does nothing and Windows still installs drivers for several devices after you uninstall them and restart:


How can I prevent it from auto-installing drivers completely??

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.

How I can display my windows 8 session on a TV using smartglass.

As I understand it, smartglass is a competitor to Apple's AirPlay. On Airplay, I can sync it with a television and show the display from a mac or ipad on a big screen wirelessly. I want to do the same thing where I can sit on my couch with a laptop, but display the windows desktop on the TV screen.

Windows 8 - Xbox Live Games Save Data

Oct 23, 2012

I have a question about the Windows 8 Xbox Live games save data. Are they accessible in the computer to backup? If so, where are they stored?

One thing that I really dont like about my WP7 is they keep away any access to the saves and when I had to get my phone replaced I lost all my hard work in them and never bought another xbox live game again cause of it.
