Using iTunes in Windows 7 with media keys on Microsoft Keyboard


Not sure if this is the right forum but I'm using iTunes on Windows 7 with Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Keyboard 7000.  I have noticed that if iTunes is the active window then I can use the next and previous track media keys.  When iTunes is not the active window it does not work.

I have also noticed that the next and previous track media keys works well with Windows Media Player regardless of whether the application is in focus or not.  My question is how do I get the media keys to work in iTunes just as well as it does with Media Player?

I find it's strange that I did not get a response back from Divya, but I've used the advice given here: and it seems to work.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
