Zune software

Hi guys,

After recieving my Lumia last week one of the first things i did was download the Zune software. Only trouble is i use my girlfriends laptop and it synced all her music, pictures and videos onto Zune. Although its not a huge problem I'd much rather it only sync items i want. If i set up my own user account on her laptop and then download the software will it still be downloaded on her user profile? (I've uninstaled it from her user profile) I understand this is more a Computer/Windows Phone question but  always seem to get good responses on here and i do need the software for my Lumia.

 

Cheers

Did you sign in as different user or account on your girlfriends laptop? If yes than Microsoft has huge mess with all the system in very basics- if not that's supposed to be the way to do.

"Although its not a huge problem I'd much rather it only sync items i want. If i set up my own user account on her laptop and then download the software will it still be downloaded on her user profile?"

 

Software will install under your new profile. it will monitor the Music, Videos and Pictures folder under your new profile.

 

"Only trouble is i use my girlfriends laptop and it synced all her music, pictures and videos onto Zune."

Next time just change the default folders to monitor for media going to Settings > Collection and add your own folders.

 

Another thing you could do is going to Settings > Device > Sync Options while your phone is plugged and change the sync option to Manual Sync for all your media.
