How to Get Pandora to Stop

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

Open the web browser that is currently playing Pandora.

Step

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

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

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