The brand-new MSI Center software provides different display modes. Compared with the previous software, it has a very good user-friendly interface operation improvement. It supports more image or video formats and does not require the user to manually crop it to use it. The preset images of each mode also have more changes, improving the shortcomings of the previous functions that are too similar. It can be seen that MSI will regularly improve its own software, which is definitely a good thing for users. However, the author still finds some shortcomings. For example, when playing more complicated GIF images or videos, the playback will stop for a few seconds at the end of the playback, even with the default image; the Chinese text of the custom slogan will change due to restarting. The question mark is garbled, and the waiting interval is too long after the end; Live Weather may not be able to catch the area to display the local temperature; the display direction will not retain the last set direction after the computer is restarted, and it needs to be reapplied before it can be switched back to the direction, etc. Wait, I hope that manufacturers can continue to improve the problem in the future.
