Do you have the Enable boxes check-marked/selected?...


Do you get a error message similar to "Hotkey registration failed! Couldn't register the following hotkeys"? Regardless, if global hotkeys are not being saved correctly it may be caused by one or more for the following reasons
  • Two or more 'Actions' in the Global Hotkey prefs. are assigned to the same key
  • Two or more instances of Winamp are running
  • Another application with hot key settings, a hot key utility or a third party Winamp hotkey plug-in has registered the key options
  • If you have a multi-media keyboard, the MM key may have already been registered bu the keyboard's utility app. (usually effects media keyboard shortcut buttons play, stop etc.)

If you are not getting the error message and the hotkey(s) are not "sticking" after restarting Winamp. Then, something may be preventing Winamp from saving settings correctly (read this and/or this)

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.
