Akin to classic arcade dip-switches, the Microsoft Zune client software for both Windows XP and Windows Vista supports a handful of command-line switches that enable you to manipulate its behavior. All the switches listed below cannot be combined and should proceed Zune.exe, unless otherwise stated.
Forces the software to render the UI using older GDI technologies, vice DirectX, permanently. This has the same effect as setting the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Zune\GeneralSettings\RenderingType DWORD to 0.
Forces the software to render the UI using newer DirectX technologies, vice GDI. This is the default behavior but can be useful if the default rendering method was changed (e.g. -switchtogdi was used earlier).
Forces the software to resize the window to specified size. Width and height values can be in several numerical formats (e.g. hexadecimal, decimal). The default window size is 1012×693 (0×3f4, 0×2b5).
Forces the software to start minimized.
