Changing Winamp's Size

The registration/paid (Pro) version allows you to "unlock" the additional high(er) speed CD burning and CD ripping in MP3 & ACCplus high bit features of Winamp Pro. Theoretically it is "forever". Once purchased subsequent upgrades should be free.

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

There are many features available in Winamp both free and Pro. The last link in the above reply lists the various features of the different Winamp packages.

The Pro package simply unlocks...
  • Ripping a CD to MP3 and/or high bit accPlus format
  • High speed ripping and burning of CDs
The above features are on a per user licensing fee and that is what the price of Pro goes to cover.

The free/basic Full package of Winamp can already burn and rip CDs, however speeds are limited and ripping CDs to the MP3 or high bit accPlus format is not available.

The Pro package is not required to resize Winamp, that has been a feature of Winamp (free or otherwise) for a long time.

I have been using Winamp for around seven years now and love it. The two biggest reasons for using and Winamp are the low resource usage and high stability. After that is the high versatility and the many features and options. Aside from the default features, additional features can be added to Winamp via plug-ins and you can change the look and feel of Winamp with skins.

Winamp Pro is not required for use of plug-ins and skins, it is also available in the free packages of Winamp.

just download a bigger skin or scale it bigger.

in modern skins
right click --> window settings --> scaling --> 150%

in classic skins
ctrl+D enables double size.
