After starting Kodi "Videos" marked in "Home"?
#1
How can I let Kodi focus on / select one of the items "FILME" or "VIDEOS" in the menu in "Home" after Kodi starts:

Or, can one create a shortcut to the search window in "Home"?

You'll need to add <defaultcontrol>ID</defaultcontrol> at line 894 in the file Home.xml in the 720p folder where ID is the same the id as the item found in that list. ie for Movies you want to use 10.

Also, if you install the 'Global Search' addon there will be a 'Search' on the home screen.

I´m a bit confused.

Focussing on an item is different from selecting the item. The latter means, that you will enter the movie library if you select "Filme". Focussing means, that the item is highlighted but not being selected yet and you have to do that manually.

So what @Hitcher says is correct if you only want to focus it. If you want to select it automatically after Kodi starts (for being at the movie library directly after) then you have to do different things.

Just make it clear what you are trying to achieve.

In that file
\Kodi\portable_data\addons\skin.confluence\720p\Home.xml
this is included
<focusposition>2</focusposition>

Changing it to <focusposition>1</focusposition>
or
<focusposition>3</focusposition>
does not change anything.

Yes, it is installed, but it does not allow to add items of the search results to the favorites, respectively to show the item in the movie or series list and then add it to favorites.

Ah, very sorry for this.

Obviously there are different meanings of those terms when used for different programs. Sorry again.

Yes, of course, thank you. Yes, just focus it, highlight / mark it.

Many thanks

Thank you very much.

I have to lines containing "defaultcontrol", one of them in line 548, may be it is this one:

And this:

When I enter there (line 548) "ID" or "10" or "2" nothing changes.
E.g.: <defaultcontrol>10</defaultcontrol>

You need to add that as a new line.
