Hi Joan Ann, Thanks for that quick response! I am very grateful for that! I was also looking in 'the help (alt and H) and sometimes you get an option in programmes to type in your request such as in this case 'shortcut keys or hot keys but I couldn't find that facility in WMP! Never thought of 'insert H! Must be like all great students this time of the week thinking of getting all spruced up, heading out for the week end to play! I will have to pay better attention at class! (smile) I'm off! Cheers, Tony. ----- Original Message ----- From: Joan Ann Brosnan To: vip_students@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Friday, October 03, 2008 7:30 PM Subject: [vip_students] Re: Shortcuts for WMP Hi Tony Here are some useful keystrokes to use with windows media player: Control and P will play/pause a track Control and S will stop a track F7 to Mute the track. F8 to decrease the volume. F9 to increase the volume. Control+Shift+B for rewinding. Control+Shift+F for fast forwarding. Control+B to move to the previous track. Control+F to move to the next track. I pressed Insert and H to get these keystrokes. Joan Ann. ----- Original Message ----- From: Tony Sweeney To: vip_students@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Friday, October 03, 2008 6:55 PM Subject: [vip_students] Shortcuts for WMP Hi All, I wonder if someone could please let me have just a few keystrokes for Windows Media Player for when you would be working with a CD? I have been to 'the help but am like "looking for a needle in a haystack" me thinks! There is an automatic scan going too which doesn't help matters! The keystrokes I would like to know are: fast forward, rewind, slow rewind and slow fast forward and going forward and back from file to file? Now if someone could even let me know exactly where to go in 'the help that would be good too. Have a good week end all. Tony.
