Pausing Music With Take Five for Mac

Can I pause my music without clicking on the pause button in the main window?

Yes, there are a few quick ways to pause the music:

  1. First, you can click on the Dock icon to pause or resume the current song.
  2. You can also click on the gear icon to open the Preferences window and set a hot key for the “Timer Start/Stop” setting. Then, whenever you press that hot key, the music playback will toggle.
  3. Take Five also has a preference to start the timer when the ▶Ⅱ media key is pressed (this works only when using Take Five with iTunes).
