Keyboard shortcuts on desktop browser

Where can I see a full list of shortcuts/hotkeys for using Deezer with a desktop browser, e.g. Chrome? I've noticed that space pauses/continues playing and Ctrl + right/left arrow fast-forwards/rewinds.

Showing corresponding keyboard shortcuts in tooltips would be handy.

By the way, you have to enable these “hotkeys” in the Deezer Labs tab in the web player, and then they will work in the desktop app as well. Some will not work in the play queue though, e.g. S for Search, because there is no search input field in the play queue where the cursor could jump to. Here is a screenshot how the overview looks in the web player when pressing H for Help:

 

To close this overview you have to press H again, Esc will not work. Sometimes you also have to click somewhere in the GUI first to give the focus back to the active browser tab.

Hi mate, press "h" and it will show you all the shortcuts! 🙂

Thanks, that works!

The shortcut reference opened with H is fine but I think that in addition a control for showing it should be somewhere in the menu. I don't think it's a good design that the user just has to know a magic key without a reference to it in the application.
This topic can be marked as solved by the way. I don't see a way to do it by myself.
