    Just a quick question i noticed on the new macbooks and macbook pros there are itunes buttons like next song prevous song and play/pause, i have a 2.2ghz macbook pro is there anyway to make my f11 or f12 buttons to make it scan previous and next song? i was wondering if theres a plug in out there thanks.

    you can use CoverSutra (shareware) to do this. in preferences under Shortcuts you can add keyboard shortcuts for Play/Pause Current Song, Next Song & Previous Song.


    you could also use Quicksilver (freeware). in its preferences add custom iTunes triggers.

    i like CoverSutra better as you can use F9 and F7 for fast forward and rewind as well as next and previous song. but im not sure if the fast forward and rewind buttons on the new Apple keyboards are also next and previous song buttons as well?
