Solved Corsair Keyboard Media Button Configuration help

    I like to play games, and when I play my games I often listen to music.
    Normally when I am waiting for a game to start I will just go to youtube, but before I watch the video I pause my music with the "play/Pause" media button in the upper right corner of my keyboard.
    Just recently though, for some reason it only works on my spotify (what I listen to music on) if nothing else is open.
    For example if just get out of a game and I want to pause my music, but I have a youtube video open in the background. It will play that video instead of playing or pausing my music like it used to. I have never had this happen and I dont know why its doing it all of a sudden because I now need to manually pause and play my music. I want my media keys to only affect spotify like it did before. It controls the last window opened basically.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Also any more clarification on what is wrong, I'd be happy to provide.

    By default, the media keys will operate any media. In other words, how it's working now is normal.

    Assuming Corsair has hardware specific software (ie: Corsair software specific to your keyboard), you can likely change the association within that software.
