    Hi and welcome Miszczu :)

    Yes, you can do that. The instructions are in our wiki -->here<-- (English - perhaps you can use Google Translate to translate).

    I have two more questions:
    1. I did this opening but now MediaPortal after opening isn't in front of the screen. I mean the Start menu and widgets cover it and I have to click with mouse on it. Can it be open in front at the beginning?
    2. I tried to install new skin to MP, but when it was installing some plugins are installed wrong (from that skin) and now i can't go to the menu Plugins in MediaPortal Configuration. I want to reinstall it, but MP isn't supporting any Polish grabber so I did all the covers etc. myself and i I don't want to lose it. Where can I find these information? Or maybe you can help me with this problem: Imageshack - 90286339.jpg.
    Sorry for posting twice but I can't find edit option :).
    Thanks for help.

    Hi again

    Please try to enable the "keep MediaPortal always on top" option in the "startup/resume settings" subsection of the "general" section in MediaPortal configuration (-->here<--).

    Sorry, my ISP has implemented a filter that prevents me from seeing the picture (imageshack.us is blocked). I think you can find what you're looking for in C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\ (that is a hidden folder so either paste the path into the Windows Explorer address bar or enable viewing of hidden files and folders). The video and music databases are in the "database" subdirectory and the images are in the "thumbs" subdirectory.

    Hi Miszczu, welcome :)

    I moved your thread to the General Support section since it seems a better fit for your questions than Operating System.

    at the bottom-right of each of your own posts you shoud see an edit button.

    Hi again!

    I'm so stupid because I didn't find option "always on top".

    I think now I have uploaded that image properly.

    Ok. I think that is my database, but I will wait maybe there is way to repair my problem without reinstalling.

    Thanks for help:).

    Hmmm, interesting problem.

    NLog is definitely something that must have been installed by a plugin - possibly MovingPictures. The message means that the NLog.dll file is missing. You could possibly get the missing DLL from -->here<-- (the "NLog-1.0-Refresh-bin.zip" option), and I *think* you would need to put it in the MediaPortal install folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal). I'm not 100% sure about that though.

    Ok, that helped. Thank you a lot:)
    Could you recommend me a skin which wouldn't cause that kind of problems? I really don't like this standart skin:)

    Avalon is a cool skin, you might also need the worldweather plugin, to replace the broken inbuilt one.
