Desktop wallpaper / Xbox Music questions

5 posts in this topic

I know they're unrelated but I figured I'd save an extra thread.

I have a Surface 3 that I use with an external monitor at work. It's always shown different wallpapers from the same theme on each screen. When I decided to change the theme I noticed there were "dual monitor" specific themes with extra wide wallpapers. I enabled one but I still get 2 different wallpapers per screen. What am I doing wrong?

I have an Xbox Music Pass and stream pretty much whatever I want. I saw Guardians of the Galaxy and liked the soundtrack so I looked it up and the only option is to buy the album. This happens on my phone and Surface. Is some of the content locked for purchase only?

For the themes your monitors have to be the same resolution and yes, some new albums are locked. It's pretty lame.

If you only care about the images (well, what else is in the theme, really?), you can download the .deskthemepack as a file, rename the extension to .rar, and extract as a normal archive. There will be a folder with the background images inside, and you can set them to as a background with Picture position Tile to get multi-monitor spanning.

I guess my issue must be the different resolutions.  My desktop monitor is 1080p.

The streaming music vs. purchase is up to the artist and/or publisher. Led Zeppelin's albums are purchase-only, for example.
