Global keyboard shortcuts

I used this global keyboard shortcuts "Win+[Up/Down/Left/Right]" when I was on XP, and on 7 "Ctrl+Alt+[Up/Down/Left/Right]" for Play/Stop/Prev/Next

Right now those are associated with my graphic driver, so I was thinking which one to use now, and thought to ask community about their experience

if you like them and are used to them, can't you turn off the keyboard shortcuts in your GPU drivers?

I can, and I'm not that used to them, so I was thinking about something easier than Ctrl+Alt, maybe Ctrl+Shift or something else
I was also curious what global hotkeys have others set

I have these (all with CTRL+SHIFT):

W - volume up
S - volume down
A - seek back
D - seek forward
Q - elplaylist collapse groups
E - elplaylist expand groups

These are inherited from winamp:
Y - previous track
X - play
C - pause
V - stop
B - next

Perhaps using ctrl+shift as modifier is not a very good idea because it can cause conflicts in programs such as Photoshop, but I've been using this for a very long time.

Just those keys without Ctrl or Alt?

Doesn't that kind of conflict with basically every other application you use?


The only global shortcut I use is Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F12* to toggle the foobar window.

Space = Toggle Pause
Ctrl+Space = stop
Ctrl+Enter = start playback
Enter = play current item
Ctrl + Up & Down = volume
Left + Right = seek 5 seconds
Ctrl + Left & Right = play next & previous
Ctrl + 0 = toggle stop after current (i.e. Stop On Next, given the current behavious)
F = playlist search

*) that may seem like a finger-ful but I also use Save For Web in Photoshop a lot, so it's really no problem, as it fits quite nicely.

All of the following keyboard shurtcuts I have set to global:
  • strg + [Num pad] , = play the actually marked track
  • strg + [Num pad] - = play the previous track
  • strg + [Num pad] + = play the next track
  • strg + [Num pad] 5 = play/pause
This is HA. Not the Jerry Springer Show.

All keys are global, fully working in WinXP only.

Win+W - Activate/Hide (With 'Minimize to tray' on)
Win+Z - Prev
Win+X - Play
Win+C - Pause
Win+V - Stop
Win+N - Next

That way I can control the player with my left hand without moving or stretching it.
I wish windows would let me use Win+B instead of Win+N...
Also, Windows 7 wouldn't let me use Win+C and Win+V
