Default Tips Day 1: Change Your Theme (Software)


Editor's Note: Today is the first in a series of tips on getting the most out of your Zune device, pass, software, and card. Check out the forums for more tips, or to submit your own.

I'm sure everyone knows by now that you can set your favorite picture to be the background on your Zune. Did you also know that you can change the "theme" of the Zune software? It's true! Just go to Settings in the software. Hit "Display", and then one of the radio buttons to watch background change before your eyes. Just remember, "you are boring if you use slate." --Stefan.

Okay, okay. You've seen this before, or the backgrounds are ugly, or maybe you just want to truly "make it you", I get it. Thankfully the boys at ZuneBoards have seen fit to give you the option of choosing any background you want. That's right, Mr. Hotshot, you can rock out to the Halo3 soundtrack with a Master Chief background, sing along with Cher, or, you know, just leave it at the default. It's your call.

Follow the instructions to pull off the Zune background of your dreams. I can only hope/imagine that due to the new software's code, we'll be seeing more cool hacks like this in the future.

Stay tuned for another installment of Zune Tips tomorrow. Got a super tip you're just dying to share with the world? Hit the comments link or discuss in the Forums.

EDIT: Bill has pointed out to me that, as with practically all other hacks, you need to run this file as an administrator on Vista. To do this, navigate to %ProgramFiles%/Zune (typically C:\Program Files\Zune), right-click your hack of choice, and select "run as administrator." If not, you'll likely see an "access denied" message.
