Features and Options
Your Zune player has its own set of settings separate from the software. Access all settings by scrolling to the Settings section from the main menu. Exact settings may vary based upon your model. Some of the common settings include Wireless, Display, Music, Pictures, Sounds, Zune Pad, Radio, Clock, Language and Screen Lock.
The Wreless Settings allow you to choose whether to use your Zune wirelessly and connect either to your computer or other players. You can select available networks and sync with your computer or another player. If you do not want to connect wirelessly, you can turn the wireless feature off. To save battery life, you may want to change the Display Settings. These settings include how long the backlight stays on and how bright the display is. You can also change your background from this menu.
For Music and Picture Settings, you can choose how music is played, such as shuffle and repeat or how long a picture is displayed during a slideshow. For your sounds and Zune pad settings, you can select whether button clicks and game sounds are on and how your Zune pad reacts to touch. You can actually turn the pad into a button if you think the pad is too sensitive.
Radio, Clock and Language Settings are pretty self explanatory. For Radio and Language, select your region and native language. The Clock Settings allow you to set the time and date and how the clock is displayed. The final setting is Screen Lock, which allows you to lock the screen to prevent any changes to the screen or what your Zune is currently doing, such as playing music, while the screen is locked. This can be good if you think you might accidentally hit a button while watching videos, viewing photos or listening to music.
