If you use the Zune software to listen to music on your PC, the normal interface is rather boring to look at. There is an alternate interface that is much more pleasing to the eye. The Now Playing interface displays the album cover of the current song set on a backdrop of the album covers from your collection.
1. Begin playing a song in the Zune software.
2. Go down to Playback controls in the lower right corner of the interface.
3. Click the Now Playing icon.
4. The Now Playing interface will appear. You will see the song list and playback controls fade off of the screen after a bit, leaving a clean picture of the current album, text showing the artist, album and song, all set atop a background created from the album covers from your collection. To get the controls and song list to reappear, simply mouseover the interface.
