Since a few months, iTunes is listening to the track-pad fingers command previous and next (3 fingers swipe) even if it's not the active application (ie: has focus).

This is extremely annoying when browsing the web and listening to music. How can I disable this shortcut that I didn't set up ?

I've searched in the trackpad settings, the itTunes ones and the keyboard => shortcuts but didn't find the solution.

    Do You have 3rd party app like Better Touch Tool or Keyboard Maestro? Jan 29, 2015 at 9:35
  • @MateuszSzlosek yes, see screenshot Jan 29, 2015 at 9:40

    So this is the culprit. Previous and Next refer to track change not going back in browser history. Jan 29, 2015 at 10:18

Problem is related with 3rd party app called Better Touch Tool. As OP showed on the screenshot - commands Previous and Next assigned to gestures, refer to Track change in iTunes not going back/forth in browser history.
