How to use Spotify overlay


Hello there Spotify community!
I'm looking for help about the Spotify overlay on my Windows 10. I did use it sometimes when I spammed my keyboard. I have it enabled but what's the actual keybind for it? Looking for volume up & down, next song & previous song. Thank you.

Hi there,


Welcome to the Community!


As it's explained in the configs, the Desktop Overlay pops up when media controls are pressed. It will depend on your keyboard, different keyboards have different keys to control media.


You can find an example here:

To use these keys, you must combine FN + F1 for example, if your keyboard doesn't have any of these keys displayed, you can either try to test FN + a combination of F(1, 2, 3 etc) to see what's going to be the answer of your keyboard.


Alternatively, you can assign macro or function keys to your keyboard manually, you can find a tutorial here.


Hope this helps! 🙂
