Hi Everyone,

Here is a useful tip for anyone wanting to bind their Xbox One Controller's "home/xbox" button to automatically launch a program (IE. Kodi or Steam). When this button is pressed, the OS tries to run a program for the "ms-gamingoverlay" (URL protocol). Rather than download and use Microsoft's gaming overlay, I find it more useful to bind this so it launches Kodi.

Run Regedit and open this key:


Then create 3 sub keys: shell, Open, command. It should look like this:


Then set the DATA for the "command" default value (type REG_SZ) to the executable you want, IE. "C:\Program Files\Kodi\kodi.exe"

Cheers - hopes this helps someone out there!
