Windows 7: windows media player usage

17 Jun 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Glad you've nailed it. The only way I've found up to now of disabling it is by ending the process windows media sideshow under wmp then ending media player, although it will come back on at some point.

It doesn't really bother me as I use media player as my main media source. You could try disabling windows side show because that is what links media player to your keyboard.

I'll have a poke around see what I come up with.

Go to control panel and windows side show and uncheck logitech lcd panel, job done.
