A simple-to-use program that helps you assign hotkeys for controlling your media player (e.g. iTunes, Winamp) in order to play or pause the current audio selection, as well as skip to the next or previous track

editor's review




MediaKeys is a lightweight Windows application whose purpose is to help users control their media player using global hotkeys.

You can install the utility on your computer or use the portable version of the program. If you opt for the second option, it is important to mention that it doesn't leave any traces in the Windows Registry.

You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to manage your media player with hotkeys on the breeze.

The tool works with the following media players: Windows Media Player, iTunes, Winamp, foobar2000, and others.

It runs quietly in the system tray until called upon when it reveals only a few configuration settings to tinker with.

The program boasts a clean and intuitive layout that allows you to set up the dedicated parameters without having to consult a help manual or watch online tutorials.

MediaKeys gives you the possibility to assign hotkeys for playing or pausing the current audio selection, as well as skipping to the next or previous track.

Other important features worth mentioning enable you to select the media player and specify the hotkeys for launching the program, adjusting the volume, and displaying the settings. Additionally, you can make the app run at Windows startup.

Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to work with this utility, even rookies can master the entire process with minimum effort.

During our testing we have noticed that MediaKeys carries out a task quickly, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. It leaves a minimal footprint on system resources, so the overall performance of the computer is not affected.

To sum things up, MediaKeys offers a simple yet efficient software solution for helping you control your media player with user-defined hotkeys. Thanks to its intuitive interface, it is suitable for all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
