I have Spotify set to start with Windows, but not iTunes. Right now I would like to use the media keys with iTunes. I closed Spotify and restarted iTunes, but the keys still don't do anything.

Apart from changing the startup programs and/or restarting my computer, is there anything I can do to get the media keys to control iTunes?

Did you close the Spotify window or quit the program? – Christopher Chipps Nov 12 '12 at 22:57
    
@ChristopherChipps, Exited the program and stopped any related processes. – mowwwalker Nov 12 '12 at 23:00
    
Is this a media keys d/l you're using to control iTunes such as this softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/… – Christopher Chipps Nov 13 '12 at 3:29
    
@ChristopherChipps, No, it normally just works :) – mowwwalker Nov 13 '12 at 3:33

I ended the itype.exe process with task manager and the media keys are working with iTunes again!
