    Prioritizing What My Keyboard's Audio Controls Control


    For a while, I was able to use the play/pause, next track, and previous track buttons on my keyboard to control the audio playing on the Spotify app. After a recent time my computer decided to restart on its own, however, these buttons control audio playing on Google Chrome. I now have to go through and mute any tabs with audio on Chrome so that a YouTube video I have up won't start randomly playing when I'm working on something else. Is there any way to make it so that my keyboard controls Spotify only and not Chrome, so I don't have to mute every tab after I watch a YouTube video or episode on Netflix.

    :)

    DTS Audio Control and headphone plug

    Hi Terry,

    This issue with the DTS Audio Control can be caused by system corruption on the application itself. As an initial troubleshooting step, we suggest that you uninstall the application. Here's how:

    • Type DTS in the search field at the task bar.
    • Right-click on the DTS Audio Control in the results.
    • Click Uninstall.
    • Once done, proceed with installing it back.

    You can also check out with HP as the manufacturer of this application for any updated drivers that can help to resolve the issue.

    You may try to plug in the headphone again once the issue has been resolved. If it is the same, try a different headphone and let us know about the results.

    Should you need additional assistance, do let us know.
