    New to Xbox One, A Few Questions


    Hello all,

    I just got my Xbox One X this week, and it's my first console since an Xbox One E. I have a few questions about the console and accessories that I'm hoping you can answer:

    1) The Xbox One Media Remote, and the Xbox One Chatpad, am I correct in guessing these items are discontinued?

    2) On my Xbox 360 E, I created a Guest Account for friends and such to use when they came over if they didn't want to download, or didn't have, and Xbox LIVE account of their own. It was also one they could use without me being signed in. Would I be correct
    in assuming the closest I can do on Xbox One would be to create a Guest Key?

    3) The background for home. When Xbox Assist is the last app used, showing up on the Home's main large tile, the background defaults to a stylish image of the Xbox One X console itself. Once I use any other App or game, it disappears. Is there anyway
    to get it to stay as your proper background? I like the image and would like to keep it up.

    4) Speaking of that large tile on Home, is there a way to make it smaller or remove it? I don't have an issue when it shows a game I've played, but when it shows something like "Avatar Editor" or "Xbox Assist," I find that not needed and a smidge silly.

    5) Is it possible to record game clips longer than 1 minute on the HDD?

    Thanks!

    :)

    Hi Juxtapose13,

    1. I don’t believe the remote or chatpad have been discontinued. They are both still available to purchase online at least and there is a help article about it here: https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/live-tv/set-up-live-tv

    2. You can still create guest accounts on your xbox, you just have to enable it in settings. Note A guest account is different from a guest key. A temporary guest account can only be created while you’re signed in and is deleted as
    soon as you or your guest signs out. A guest key is a reusable passcode that allows guests to use your console without requiring you to be signed in. https://support.xbox.com/en-US/my-account/security/use-guest-account

    3. https://www.xbox.com/en-us/wallpapers/ https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/console/change-xbox-one-background these
    links provide wallpapers and info on how to customize your background

    4. i believe this shows the last active app

    5. You can capture upto 10 minutes depending on space. Further info is here https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/console/capture-game-clips-and-screenshots

    hope that helps!

    You can definitely get the media remote online at least.

    Hi there Juxtapose13,

    Thanks for reaching out here in Xbox Forums. I understand there are some inquiries in regards to the Xbox One X.

    1. The accessories are no longer available on the Microsoft Store website.
    2. Check out these articles for Guest Use on Xbox One:
    3. Try this article for personalizing the Xbox One: Personalize your color,
      background, and theme on Xbox On
      e.
    4. The last icon will always displayed the last app used.
    5. For more information on game clips on Xbox One: Record and capture Xbox One game clips and screenshots.

    Hope this helps.

    Hey all,

    Thanks for your replies!

    1) For the Media Remote and Chatpad, I have been able to find them online, though they seem to be in low supply and insanely overpriced. If they are indeed discontinued though, that would make sense, and I'll be passing on them.

    2) I read the articles on Guest Accounts and Guest Keys before posting. So to confirm, I can not actually create a permanent, Guest Account like I could on my Xbox 360, I can only create a temporary one that will only exist when my account is logged in,
    or create a pass code (key) that will permit someone to do things when I'm not logged in, correct?

    3) @L Dubs89 Thanks for the link, those are some cool wallpapers! I assume then that the image that appears in the background when Xbox Assist is the last used is one I can not save and make perma?
