How to assign ESC for a keyboard shotcut?
When I try to assign ESC, the preferences window closes. One can only assign modified shortcuts, like Shift-Esc, etc.

how to assign the "ESC" as in "escape" key? to do what?

what are you trying to do. i am afraid, i am not native english speaking but i'd say i am pretty good at english. but your topic doesnt make much sense.

what are you trying to achieve? to close foobar by pressing the escape key? or are you trying to close it to the tray? or are you trying to minimize your foobar2000 windows?


quote of s1y: "when i try to assign ESC"

when you try to assign ESC -> TO DO WHAT???

Use Shift-ESC then. Unfortunately there are some limitations in every software, mostly coming from operating system API. No matter for what reason (foobar's built-in or due to Win32API) you checked yourself, that ESC can not be used as a keyboard shortcut, because it does other things in the app. If you see it is impossible - use different solution then (Shift-ESC, Control-ESC, whatever is possible).

Is 24-bit/192kHz good enough for your lo-fi vinyl, or do you need 32/384?
