Brief rewind hotkey in Windows Media Player
Posted on 2011-04-27
When playing a simple .wav audio file from the hard drive (i.e. not using the CD/DVD drive) in Windows Media Player (wmp) (v12), is there any way to get just a very brief rewind? I'm thinking of something similar to how most voice mail systems, as you are listening to a message, allow you to press a number on your phone to go back just a few seconds.
I am not refering to anything requiring a mouse click, etc., because I find it almost impossible to consistently get a rewind increment of a very small size using a mouse. As a result, I frequently find my self sitting and listening to content I don't want to hear while waiting for it to catch up to the position I want.
I'm also not wanting a simple rewind button like on a cassette player, etc. (although it would be nice to know how to do that on wmp as well).
I'm interested in having a single key which I can press once or multiple times as neede. It's OK if it requires more than a single key because I can use AHK (AutoHotKey) to turn any key combination, etc., into a single key macro.
BTW, I read something saying Ctrl+Shift+B is supposed to rewind but that is not doing it.
