    Hi,

    I wonder that is it possible to cue with the keyboard in Itunes? (5 second or so).

    To cue with the mouse is too long. (I pickup songs...)
    Thank
    Simon

    It can be done.. but only if iTunes is your selected program (though I'd be willing to bet there is third party software to change that).

    There is lots of software out there for making system-wide Hotkeys for iTunes and other apps. I use MenuTunes to show track changes, and I added a hotkey for next track.

    This is what I use, and haven't found anything better. It allows you to change tracks while in any app, and displays the song/artist/album/art for every song.

    I personally use the 'left' and 'right' arrows for backward and forward respectively while iTunes is in the background. Haven't tried other keys combo though. ;)

    I use Sizziling Keys for Itunes :) it is great help since you can change your music without going to iTunes except for when your in a game then it is not possible...
