Xperia X3 deafult lockscreen music widget buttons



On my lockscreen, the default music widget that cannot be moved or deleted (I think it's the walkman widget) only controls play/pause, and volume up/down.

It's pretty redundant to have a volume control on the lockscreen when there is a physical button on the phone, in my opinion.
On top of that, when I change the volume the widget's buttons are covered by the volume slider, so it's doubly innefective/annoying for me.


My question is: is there a way to change the function of the volume up/down buttons in the walkman/default music lockscreen widget so that they control track forward/back?

I'm not sure what you mean. Could you post a screenshot of this? As far as I know, there are no buttons to control the volume for the Walkman widget at the lockscreen.
