Why with "x" button does not change between the Now Playing playlist and possible? (1 Viewer)

Sometimes I find the behavior of MediaPortal somewhat inconsistent. I think it should be possible to change the "X" key on the keyboard between the "NowPlayingScreen" and the playlist. There currently is called with this key only the "Now Playing screen," but why can it not switch back to the playlist. Just as is the case when watching TV is?

    You might edit the keyboard mappings to include a back action on x for now playing screen

    the "x" button is used to switch between "full screen viz" and the screen you are currently on.
    some years ago there was a request to change the behavior to switch to "now playing" in case of no viz enabled.
    but we don't keep track, where you did come from, so we can't flip between the screens.

    you might assign a keyboard action for x on now playing, like it was suggested above.
