Flex 4 Media Keys

Is there any way to make the play/pause, stop, rewind, and fast forward buttons in the top right corner of the Flex 4-1570 keyboard to work with multiple programs open? When only Spotify is open, the keys work as they are intended to, but as soon as Chrome is also running, the keys no longer do anything (even with Spotify in focus). Any way to fix this?

Hi anandp773,

 

Have you tried to Update the Hotkey driver? I know this worked with the Flex 2 and 3, so dont know why it wouldnt with the 4.

Where can I find the Hotkey drivers online? The only relevant driver I could find on the Lenovo support website was for the touchpad driver (under the Mouse/Keyboard section).

I tried downloading the drivers found here, which were updated last month, but even after restarting my computer, the media keys only work if Spotify is the only running program.
