Guide: How I altered Windows to look and feel like an XBMC HTPC appliance

vinayaga Wrote:Well, there are some functional elements to some parts of the discussion. At least in my case, when Windows starts up, explorer minimizes XBMC when there is a notification on the desktop. So I have to dig out the keyboard and connect it just to get XBMC to maximize. Its a pain. I have not followed the guide to replace explorer with XBMC as the shell and it works like a charm. The startup graphics changes are just the icing on the cake.

My solution to this is to disable any tray applets that display notifications: actually I simply didn't install any such applets in the first place. I have the green button on the remote configured to launch XBMC in case it ever does minimise (launching XBMC when it's minimised just restores the existing instance of XBMC to fullscreen).
