I was tired of not being able to skip with a keyboard shortcut if Spotify wasn't focused, so I created an Alfred workflow to let you do exactly that. I recommend using the keyboard shortcut ^ + ⌘ + →/← for skipping forward and backward as it is already set in Spotify and is most likely not a shortcut used by other apps. If you enjoy this workflow or rely on it to enhance your Spotify experience, please consider donating. I'm a college student creating and working on open source projects such as this one for free to enhance your experience on your Mac, and I hope you enjoy it. If you have any questions, open an issue on GitHub. I hope this workflow treats you well! Source: https://github.com/3raxton/SpotifyGlobalSkip/
I use a keyboard that for reasons unknown is unable to send the media key codes successfully to macOS - hitting play/pause works to play/pause the currently selected media app, but hitting "next" or "prev" media keys does nothing. If I simulate these keypresses using the macos "keyboard viewer" app then the media apps all respond correctly - but opening the keyboard viewer simply to skip a track is tedious, and I don't have the screen space free to leave the viewer visible all the time. My keyboard provider (logitech) is not so far able to rectify the issue - so while I wait I thought maybe I could use Alfred to send the appropriate media key presses to the macos system in response to a command. Unfortunately the mini-player in Alfred is tied to the Music app and I'm using something else. Is there a way to get Alfred to do this? Thanks in advance for any help.
