My USB keyboard does not have "media" keys -- that is, dedicated keys for play, stop, next, prev, volume up/down, etcetera.
For the sake of this question, I would prefer not to install additional software if I can avoid it.
Is it possible to issue some standard key sequence on a generic USB keyboard that emulates these play, stop, etc. multimedia keys?
Like Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F12 or something obscure like that?
