Windows 7: Windows Media Player shortcut keys

Windows Media Player shortcut keys

Hey guys,

Does anybody know any way of changing the default keyboard shortcuts of windows media player.

I am mainly concerned with the "pause" keyboard shortcut on windows media player.
The default is "CTRL+P" but I would much rather have "SPACE" key as the default like other popular media players like VLC, Media Player classic etc.

Thanks in advance.

Hi CrashOverride,
As far as my knowledge i don't believe that is possible. But maybe you can try a utility called
AutoHotKey. You can find the Script for it here
