1. Exit WinAmp.

2. Go to the following directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\Skins\Winamp Modern\xml
[Note: if you've installed WinAmp somewhere else, or moved the skins directory, make the appropriate changes to the path.]

3. Use your favorite text editor to edit the following file (you may need to run the editor in administrator mode):
player.xml
4. Replace this:
code:
<include file="playlistpro.xml"/>

with this:
code:
<!-- <include file="playlistpro.xml"/> -->


5. Save the file.

6. At this point, the player window will correctly save its position data. Most of the time. If it doesn't save the position, try again. Usually repeating it once or twice will do the trick.

7. The playlist editor, however, is another thing entirely. If you lock it to the player and move the combined player/playlist, the playlist reverts to its old location once you close the playlist or exit WinAmp. To permanently move the playlist editor, you must move it by itself. It's okay to lock it to the player, but you must do that by moving the playlist, not the player.
i created the account just to thank you. By the way, for the playlist editor to 'follow' the player every time you open Winamp, right click the playlist editor > Window Settings > Dooked Toolbar > Tick Dock/Undock Windows by Dragging This works for me, hope it helps too.
