A Funny Thing Happened During SBAC Testing... iTunes

During our SBAC testing today, one frustrating occurrence is the spontaneous (apparently) opening of iTunes. Since it is disabled it as a login item, it must be something else that is triggering it. Thankfully, the Interwebs have the answer! Because the F8 key on a modern iMac keyboard is also a keyboard shortcut to open iTunes. Since the SBAC secure browser will not run with iTunes open, the easiest way to avoid this is to:
  1. Open System Preferences
  2. Select Keyboard
  3. Select the Keyboard sub menu
  4. Check the box "Use All F1, F2, etc. keys as standard..."
Be sure the volume control is visible in the menu bar so that students are able adjust the volume without the keyboard:
  1. Open System Preferences
  2. Select Sound
  3. Check the box "Show Volume in Menu Bar"
