Windows 7: WMP and media keys

17 Feb 2014   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
WMP and media keys

Everytime I use the media keys on my keyboard (To play, pause, switch to next or previous music) windows media player will become the "focused" window. (Not sure what it's called)
Like when I'm in a full screen game and I use the media keys, the game will minimize and windows media player will popout as the "current" window

Is there anyway to stop this? Windows media player is a good media player and I do not wish to download another player thank you ;x

I thought that's the way it's supposed to work. How else would you get back to the play list. I use a remote and some of the function keys on it work on any window that has the focus. The mouse rocker works on any window--Just like a regular mouse.

You might try turning off visualizations under Now Playing.
