How to Get Pandora to Stop

By J.S. Copper

Pandora is an online radio service that creates personalized radio stations based on a single song or artist. The user enters a song or artist and Pandora plays music that matches the same musical criteria as the source. Users can tailor the Pandora experience by giving songs a thumbs up or thumbs down, further personalizing the listening experience. If you are listening to Pandora at your desk and wish to stop playback, the process is easy.

Step 1

Open the web browser that is currently playing Pandora.

Step 2

Click the “Pause” icon in the upper-right-hand corner of the Pandora music player. This stops the music. A large pause icon, with the word “Paused” will overlay the artwork of the current song.

Step 3

Press the computer’s space bar while Pandora is the active window, in lieu of pressing the on-screen pause button. The space bar will stop/pause the music playback.

Step 4

Press the space bar or pause button again to resume playback when desired. Pandora will pick up exactly where you left off.
