The music player buttons that pop-up (rewind, play/pause, fast-forward) when hitting the volume controls are nice, but when not playing music they get kind of annoying (taking up screen space).

Is there a way to manually remove them when not using them?


Right now there is no built in solution without rebooting the phone. However, there are apps that do fill the gap. I use one called Stop The Music. All it does is clear the "now playing"playlist. It does so with no extra frills and can even pin a tile that stops the music, and then quits.

There likely are other options, but this is the one I use.
