Solved: Global hotkeys passing keys to the active program

Post by thebitguru »

Hi,

I have a few global hotkeys setup (WIN+ALT+B for next track for instance), but it seems that MediaMonkey doesn't prevent the active application from interpreting this combination in addition to doing the assigned action. So, for instance, while in Outlook if I press WIN+ALT+B, MM will go to the next track, but in addition Outlook will switch views because ALT+B is a shortcut in Outlook. This seems to be something that started happening with the newer versions. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

Thanks!

My initial search didn't turn up any reports of this issue, but I just found a post reporting it. Unfortunately, there haven't been any replies to it and it seems to be a relatively old post (Nov 09).

nohitter151, adding PreferLLKeysHook=1 to MediaMonkey.ini took care of it. Thank you very much!
