How do I prevent windows from using a function key but allow a specific application to use it?
In my particular case: I have a media player that can be visible on screen or not. I want to use F10 for pause/play. So in my player I setup a global hotkey and that works fine.
The problem is that the current active application(not being media player) gets an "Activate Menu" signal by windows when I press F10. The media player stops, but the application will start the menu browsing process. This distorts any typing I was doing before pressing F10 . How to I prevent windows from doing this but leave F10 working.
Basically I want my media player to have exclusive rights to F10 when it's playing.
