My Question or Issue


Recently i had a lot of issues with my media keys. They are working, but what annoys me that they prioritize youtube or any other chrome tab before spotify. So I have to close every other programm where i am able to pause and unpause certain things. 

And this wasnt the case before, my media keys would control my spotify.

Does anyone have a clue what might have changed?


I know this might be rather unrelated, but i would appreciate any kind of advice to solve this "Problem".

Text in case you dont wanna follow the link:



Chrome added media key support.

Go to "chrome://flags/ " and search for Hardware Media Key Handling.

Disable that and you should be good =)


You can also download the app store version. And do what @omfg1 said.
