=== File mode ===
+
|- class="userrow"
File mode is the most basic way of browing your music. In file mode, you browse through your sources folder by folder, in the exact same way they are stored. What you see in file mode is the same as you would see if you were to browse the folders on your computer.

===Library mode===

|- class="userrow"
The library mode is much more advanced and has many more features than the Files View. It has features like song, album and artist info to name a few.
+
| class="usercell" | System.CPUTemperature
In order to utilize library mode, you first need to scan your music into the Music library using the [[#Contextual menu]].
+
| class="usercell" | Current CPU temperature
 
+
|- class="userrow"
== Searching your Library ==
+
| class="usercell" | System.GPUTemperature
The search button is available on the left side of the '[[Music]]' window, and is also available in the root listing of your music library. Select it to begin your search. A keyboard will pop-up where you may enter search terms (SMS style with the remote, or just using the virtual keyboard). As you enter more letters, the search will be performed in the background, and results displayed in the search node of the music library. Previous searches are saved, so if you return to the search node later on, it will have the results of your previous search. Artists and Albums are shown on top, followed by matching songs. If the search string you enter is less than 3 characters, XBMC will just search in the first word of each artist/album/song. Otherwise it will do a full word search. '''NOTE: In order to search within words as well as just for words beginning with your search string, place a % sign in front of the match.'''
