Force mmw to be the only program controlled by keyboard

Post by nonob »


I have a keyboard (Logitech K400r) with some basic media buttons : play/pause, next, previous, and volume.

I have both Mediamonkey and Spotify running on my PC.

When i use the play/pause button, the last media player used is controlled.

Can i force mediamonkey to be the only program to be controlled by my keyboard, at least when both MM and spotify are minimised ? I searched in logitech settings but didn't found anything about that.

How does it works ?
