Customising Kodi: Adding Favourites

So we’ve downloaded, installed and setup our Kodi but what next?

Our next tutorial focuses on adding Favourites to Kodi. For some, clicking all the way through the various menu’s is too much work (for us too!) and so why not have a quick and easy way to access our favourites Add-Ons, Channels, Shows, Movies, Sports and everything else!.

You can either follow the steps below, or you can watch the tutorial video, it’s up to you.

To add favourites, we would simply choose the Addon, Shows or whatever that we want to be able to access quickly. I’m a big sports fan, so having quick access to Sky Sports News would be beneficial to me, but once you’ve decided you can carry on from here…


  1. So, our first step is to locate our chosen channel, Sky Sports News.
  2. In the video I am navigating through the various menu’s until I find my selection.
  3. Once I have located my choice, I simply right click on it, then choose the ‘Add to Favourites’ option by clicking on it.
  4. You would then click on the home icon at the bottom of the screen to return to the home menu.
  5. When you are back at the home menu, if you look at the bottom left hand side of the screen, you will see a star icon. Click on the star icon, and you will notice that your favourites menu appears on the right hand side…that’s all there is to it!.
  6. In the video, I also quickly show how to name your favourite whatever you want. I didn’t want the ‘Link 1’ text in, so in the video you see me delete this text and save the Favourite simply as Sky Sports News.

So you want to change the background image on your Kodi Media Centre?

Easy!. You can either watch the video above, or simply follow the steps below.

1 First thing we want to do, is to select an image that we wish to use as the background. It could be a family image, a personal picture, whatever you want. Once you have selected it, copy to the Desktop of your computer for easy use, or simply remember where the image is stored.

2 The next step, is to locate the media folder within Kodi. This is the default folder where the images for your Kodi background will be stored. Rather than search through your entire computer trying to find it, simply use the Windows search function to locate the folder. Press your Windows key, and in the magnifying glass image which is the search function, type the following: %APPDATA%\kodi\

When the search results appear, we want to select the file named media. We would now simply copy the desire image we wish to use as our background into the Kodi Media Folder.

3 Once you have copied over the image, open up Kodi Media Centre. When Kodi is open, select System from the Menu, and then choose Settings. Choose the Appearance Option, Then choose the Skin Settings Option. Choose the Background Option from the Menu.

Ensure that the Enable Custom Background option is enabled. A blue dot beside it means we have enabled it. You would now simply click on the Background Path option, and choose the image we selected earlier, and copy it over to the Kodi Media folder.

Thats it!. You now have your own personal image as your background within Kodi.
