Stop iTunes From Starting From Media Keys

Published by at 10:07 pm under How To,Shit I Forget

I love to have music going when I am heads down into my computer but I really don’t like iTunes… So the Media key on the keyboard of my Mac has been all but useless to me until I finally did some searching and found some articles on LifeHacker. On the first post I like the first trick of renaming the iTunes application. Yes it’s command line and for some that is scary but it is quick and simple. Just open Terminal and run three lines and bam iTunes is not a problem any more.

cd /Applications/

sudo mv iTunes iTunesX

sudo chmod uog+x iTunesX

If that is a problem checkout the original articles for other ways to do the same thing.
