Function 1: Quick configuration for image managementIn the Start Menu, find the shortcut key Window Media Center], Click it to see its beautiful "fangrong"

Chart 1: Welcome Page

Chart 2: I will not explain the Chinese meaning of the interface introduction. In the middle, it is a functional preview chart. The following is a description. The navigation arrows on both sides are used to select a function, the function is the same as that of the scroll bar. There are two buttons in the upper left corner of the interface. The window logo button has two functions: one is used for full screen, and the other is used to return to the home page of task settings. The interface is nice enough. Now let's start our "Dazzling experience". Step1.1: Scroll the function to image management (as shown in ). Step: click "continue" to get started. Figure 3: getting started here, there are three functional buttons: [Learn More]: This is the official website of Microsoft Media CenterFor more information, see.

The horizontal red box area is the media library included in the main function, that is, the sub-functional area. Step: select the [Image Library] button to go to the "subject ".

Chart 5: The image library selects the quick configuration on the Getting Started page, so the folder we see here is the sample image ]. What if we place our images in other locations? Don't worry. I will talk about this later. Continue and click the folder option to see the image we have been waiting for a long time, browsing Images in this way is not "Exciting", very fresh, and more interesting, and I will try again later. Step: browse image Charts 6: Image Browsing Interface Function 2: add custom folders to manage local musicIn feature 1, we demonstrated the quick configuration. Now we can add a custom folder to demonstrate the music management function. Here we omit step 3 (see figure 3, on the page shown in step 3, Step2.1: After we select the [Music] function, we can see Chart 7: It's strange. Why is it different from the interface in function 1? Because there is no music file in the default [sample music] folder, the system gives us a friendly reminder, follow the prompts to make it easy. Step 2.2: Modify the task settings, as shown in Figure 8: The task function has seven options in the subfunction area of the task function. Here, we only select the settings option. For other options, click here, are very simple, Step2.3: Go to the [settings] Option to see the list of settings shown, you can Media CenterWe need to use the [media library] here to set the required functions, so we will not explain the selection of other functions. If you are interested, you can click it to see it. They are all in simplified Chinese. Note that we need to modify the storage path of the music file, but here the [Music] option is to adjust the playing appearance of the music, do not select an error!

Figure 11: Add a folder to the media repository step: select the folder location (see figure 12) Chart 12 I don't think anyone will add their favorite music to others' computers, so we chose [on this computer]. The other two functions will be shared in the next section. Step 2.7: select a folder containing music. By default, the system searches for shared folders in a working group or in the same domain. Table 13 shows a very friendly directory structure tree, similar to the resource manager. Figure 13: I added my music to the root directory of drive C, so I can easily find it. If anyone adds music to a very hidden place, you can use the up and down arrows in the bottom right corner of the directory structure to select a browser. Select MusicFolder, click Next Figure 14Step2. 8: click "finish". Now we can return to enjoy my music. Figure 15: select a Because Of You for music browsing. The background is other songs. This interface is cool. Function 3: video functionsIn the first two features, we demonstrated how to browse images and enjoy music. Here we will look at the super practical feature-video management. The first two features are explained in the example of managing local media files, now let's demonstrate how to watch media files on other computers. Imagine that if we have two computers at home, and your cute little girl is very engaged in Korean drama, what do you want to watch most of the martial arts movies on her computer? Our conventional approach is to take the mobile hard drive to your computer. Is there any need to Copy it without affecting your cute little girl to watch Korean dramas? Can you still see the martial arts film? Media CenterYou can solve this problem and see how to demonstrate it. Step: choose task> Settings> media repository> video> Add file to media repository, select the location of the video file, and click other computers. 16: on other computers, [on other computers] and [manually add shared folders] are actually the same thing, the difference is that the previous system will automatically select the shared folder in the same working group or domain for us, and the latter needs to be manually added to the shared folder. I like the latter and I suggest you select the former. Step3.2: select the network location of the video file storage Figure 17: select a folder containing videos, as shown in. the system automatically finds two computers in the home, one being CLIENT1 and the other being WIN7C, in addition, three shared folders are found on CLIENT1.

Chart 18 on this page, we can see that the video path has been directed to the network location. Click "finish" and a prompt window "Updating the media repository" will appear in the lower right corner of the page, OK. The next step is to sit down and enjoy our movie. Step: Click the window icon in the upper left corner to return to the main function page (as shown in Table 8). Select the [Image + Video] function to go to the [Video Library] and you will see our video folder, table 19: Figure 19: The video folder in the network location points to the file path, all of which are in the network location. Step3.5: Enjoy the video. I don't have a martial arts film here. It's about the features of Microsoft office 2010. Chart 20: video file list.
