Kodi in it's own window

Hi guys

I have a PC running Peppermint 6 with Kodi & Steam installed, I’ve set it to boot straight into kodi and installed the Steam addon form here [RELEASE] Steam Launcher - Start Steam Big Picture Mode from within Kodi so I can launch steam directly from Kodi missing out the desktop but the launcher only works if I run Kodi from the desktop It wont work if Kodi is running in it’s own session

I posted my problem on the Kodi forum and was told by the developer himself I need to make Kodi run in it’s own window or use the Steam compositor the problem is I don’t know how to do either so I posted back asking how I do that and so far haven’t received a reply.

So can anybody here explain how to either make Kodi run in it’s own window or use the Steam compositor ?

the conversation is here

Does he simply mean kodi needs to be non-fullscreen (windowed) … IIRC the backslash key toggles kodi between windowed and fullscreen modes.
