I need to know if there is any way to change the hot key (or get rid of it) for the Now Playing Assistant.  It's not listed anywhere under Edit Preferences/Hotkeys.  I need that Alt + J for another program and it won't let me use it.  Even in my word processor every time I hit that key combination it brings up the Assistant.

I have to have that Alt+J for a vital step in my word processor so is there any way to disable it in MusicBee?  I never use the Now Playing Assistant.  As a matter of fact until I tried to use that hotkey while editing a document I didn't even know it existed!  So please tell me how to get rid of it in MusicBee!

Help on this will be greatly appreciated.

Hi, welcome to the forum!

It is in preferences > hotkeys, actually, under "View: Show Now Playing Assistant". You can change the hotkey and/or turn off the "global" setting.
