When you click Tasks ^-Settings^-General^-Startup and Window Behavior, you will see the Startup and Window Behavior screen shown in Figure 25-22. From this screen, you can choose how your Windows Media Center windows behave in conjunction with other windows. You can tell Windows Media Center to always be on top of other windows on your desktop by checking the box next to this setting. You can also have Windows Media Center display a warning before displaying web pages that are not designed for Windows Media Center by checking the box next to this setting.
Selecting the checkbox next to "Start Windows Media Center when Windows starts" will allow Windows Media Center to open on the desktop display before anything else opens. This enables you to work with Windows Media Center as the main focal point of the operating system, and controlling it via a remote control allows you to use it like you would use your TV.
The last setting available, "Show taskbar notifications," allows Windows Media Center to notify you with issues or settings you need to look at in Windows Media Center. Once you have made your desired selections, click or select Save to save the settings into your profile.
