moderated Sonos for PC, et al.

Richard Turner

Since many people on this list use Sonos on their iOS devices and on a Windows computer, I am sharing a discovery.  I found the Sonos windows application and its keyboard shortcuts.

It is quite slick to be able to choose your rooms and music, etc., on the computer. 

The link to the sonos support page for the apps for all supported systems is at the end.


Here are the keyboard shortcuts.

Richard, in the U.S.


"You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space, that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young."

"Why, what did she tell you?"

"I don't know, I didn't listen."

-- Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy
