View Full Version : Ctrl + A

I'm sure many of you guys here know that CTRL + A is the standard windows "Select All" hotkey command. But it is also the Winamp "Always On Top" hotkey command. This represents a problem when you select all the items in a winamp list, it causes winamp to stay on top when you try and bring up another window such as explorer. I suggest changing or removing the "CTRL + A" hotkey command for "Always On Top" as I find it easier and confusing to just to "Right Click -> Options -> Always on top".

You're right J_Darnley. I totally agree and do not understand this choice.

It works fine for me. You just have to make sure your focus is on the list you want to select.

I am unable to reproduce the bug. Ctrl+A does not toggle 'Always on top' when the Playlist or Media Library is in focus. Tested with classic and modern skins.
From the Shortcut key list (via the 'Keyboard shortcuts' tab in the About Box)
Ctrl+A Toggle Always on Top (N/A in playlist editor and media library)
Ctrl+Alt+A Toggle always on top (playlist editor)
Knacker got there before me. Good Job :up: :)

Ok I see that. I must have not been focused on the playlist when I pressed it, but I must say it seems just as peculiar because there are the two hotkeys for the same command. I now know why it was causing it and I will be more careful in future so make sure I am focused on the playlist/ML. I still think it would be better to make CTRL + ALT + A to be the hotkey for all windows in winamp.
Thanks for your time.
