How to assign Play/Pause button to answer and hangup calls

I would like to program the Play/Pause button to answer and hangup calls. The windows Play/Pause key is 179 or 0xb3.

Re: How to assign Play/Pause button to answer and hangup calls

I found it. Edit the file

 

                C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Skype\<your skype user name>\config.xml

 

Change mod = 0 as seen below. Exit skype and Restart.

It will display 'G' as the hot key which is fine because I'm not near my keyboard when answering skype calls. The <b003> is the hangup code which I programmed to fast foward button which is the 'P' key.

 

    <Hotkeys>
      <Enabled>1</Enabled>
      <b000>
        <enabled>1</enabled>
        <keyCode>179</keyCode>
        <mod>0</mod>
      </b000>
.

.

.

      <b003>
        <enabled>1</enabled>
        <keyCode>176</keyCode>
        <mod>0</mod>
      </b003>
