Download of the Day: Windows iTunes Hotkey


This one goes out to all you PC-loving geeksugar fans who routinely scold me for being Mac-centric. Yesterday Lifehacker featured this open-source app iTunes Hotkey controls iTunes with keyboard shortcuts that will aid every PC-music fan out there.

The Amazing Ant assigns key combinations to iTunes functions. Here's more:

Ctrl+Insert: Play
Ctrl+Home: Pause
Ctrl+Page Up: Previous song
Ctrl+Page Down: Next song
Ctrl+End: Stop
Ctrl+Up: Increase iTunes volume (not system volume)
Ctrl+Down: Decrease iTunes volume (not system volume)
Ctrl+Shift+Insert: Toggle shuffle mode
Ctrl+Shift+Home: Toggle repeat mode

iTunes Hotkey is a free download, however it requires the free .NET framework to run. Donwnload it off Lifehacker. It works for Windows XP and Windows Vista. Are you a Mac user and want to know more shortcuts that will work for your keyboard? read more
