Go to Options found on the Left Menu, click on the sliding button, and then Activate.
Once done, the application can be dragged and dropped onto any page via the Build menu.
The Media Library element is added to a page in the same manner as any other content element. Simply drag-and-drop the Media Library on a blue area of the page to apply the element wherever you want it to appear.
