I have now got a Mac Pro keyboard and it does not have the iTunes play/pause images on them, so obviously, it does not work. Any suggestions to map the F8 key to control iTunes?

  • How does the keyboard look like? Can you post the link to an image? It's not this as depicted here apple.com/keyboard? – slhck Dec 13 '12 at 17:54
  • What happens if you press F8? Nothing? – pratnala Dec 13 '12 at 18:01
  • Yeah just the Old mac pro KB. Nothing happens. – Keaton Dec 17 '12 at 19:06

If you use the external keyboard with a laptop, you can use KeyRemap4MacBook. (It only works if there's at least one other keyboard that has the media keys.)

No matter what keyboard you connect, you can use BetterTouchTool (free) to create your own custom shortcuts. iTunes Pause/Play is a possible action. This should be more flexible and versatile…

  • I would love to do that but I can't since I am on a Leopard PowerMac G5 – Keaton Jan 9 '13 at 14:56
