Summary0017898: Add a method to only reload window, to facilitate faster skin switching & addon installation without interrupting playback
DescriptionSome users have pointed out that switching skins is very slow in MM5 compared to in MM4, because the entire app reloads instead of just reloading the HTML+JS+LESS. When switching skins and installing most addons, the entire app does not need to reload; only just the window. Adding a second, "light" reload method for switching skins and installing addons would facilitate faster reloads, without having to stop audio playback.
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build2658

Does this need to implemented in Skins themselves. Switching from Material Design to Black Monkey (and later back) did a full restart of MediaMonkey on 2658.
