Media buttons on Microsoft Keyboard not working when a file/folder is selected in Explorer


1. Play an audio file or a YouTube video

2. Open windows explorer and select any file/folder

3. Pressing the Pause/Stop/Rewind/Forward buttons on a Microsoft Keyboard won't work


This issue was not present on Windows 10. I have a Microsoft Digital Media Keyboard 3000 and installed the MS Mouse & Keyboard Center.


Anyone else who could reproduce this issue with a keyboard with media buttons?
