    Ok friends,

    I am in a bit of a problem again. I have a very cool Windows 8 desktop PC and I am very happy.

    But there is one small issue. No a big one actually. WHY DOES MY MUSIC APP look like this?



    The on the right is mine and the one on the left is how it is supposed to be right??


    I downloaded the Music App from the Store.

    I am on:
    x64 Windows 8 Enterprise N Edition.

    I might add, the app didn't come with the OS. Just downloaded it yesterday...if that helps.

    My music app looks just like the Xbox one. I am using Windows 8 Pro. I didn't have to download a Music app though. Maybe it's because you're using Enterprise edition? In the attachments I added you can see that I get your default screen when I click on my music, but I can go back through the back arrow right next to the title.

    You posted this on XDA, I think a few people suggested you solutions. Didn't that work?

    I have nothing in my music. I am still trying to figure out how to add my network server music storage to my music. Keeps telling me its lonely. I have my music server folder added to the music library so not sure why its not showing up. I did click on Adele in the feature tile and it allowed me to add to my music because I have that album on my server. I tried a different artist I did not have and that option was not available. So I am confused. I surely don't want to have to manually click through every artist somehow to add to my music.

    Right click Music under Libraries.
    w
    Properties>Add (add your folder here)

    Just make sure while you do this, you don't have your Music App open.

    Once you are done adding it, start the Music App. All your music, in one place. Enjoy.

    You have the 'N' edition. That's the EU mandated non media version. That's why you had to download the app from the store and wasn't included in the OS. Thus no Xbox Music. Also, your country may not currently be supported by the Xbox Music store.

    Oh...ok, thanks. But strangely, the Music App when I got it from the store, in the screenshot has 'XBOX Music'...

    Anyways, thanks.

    Cheers! Try getting the regular version. The N edition may not even have WMP included.

    My network storage location was already there when I installed win8 upgrade as I kept all my settings and files. Did a little googleing and it seems it may not like having networked storage. Wants me to copy all files to my PC so they can be indexed which it claims is only possible if available offline.

    Not sure what Adele was playing because I was skipping through songs to get to one I liked and got an xbox music pass advertisement come up and play. So maybe adele is just an album that anyone can listen to for free while online???

    I think the reason yours looks different is because of the N Edition. I remember there being something different between ours before. Mine looks just like the one that is shown. Maybe it isn't quite fully ready for India yet.

    No, the reason for this look is that XBox Music service is not available in your country, I have the same in Czech republic
