Windows 7: Keyboard Shortcuts For Media Center.

16 Dec 2009   #1

Keyboard Shortcuts For Media Center.

I have a keyboard that can pause/play and do volume control and it would rock if it had a button to change songs previous/next from WMP, even if the window isn't active. The question of the day is whether these functions integrated in my keyboard are shortcuts (that can be typed out) or something else. I would love to be able to control music without having to switch windows. If you're too lazy to type then please just copy and paste the URL of a page that might have a list of those keyboard shortcuts. Any help would save me from a lot of agony!

These shortcuts only work when the windows is active.

Disable Keyboard Shortcuts in Windows Media Center?
I was just wondering if it is possible to disable keyboard shortcuts such as Ctrl-Alt-Del or Alt-Tab in Windows Media Center. I really like the 'Media Only' mode which takes away the exit window buttons from WMC, and I was hoping that there was also a way to turn off exiting and window changing...
