Winamp Tech Support is right through that portal --> 0

Also, don't expect to get much help with such a vague description of the problem.

This is a sig of some nature.

hell i honestly would have at least tried to figure out how and post that myself if only he'd have made it clear which fonts he means.

I hate everyone, so you don't have to.

How do i make bigger fonts in Winamp on both the layout and the music titles

Terribly sorry if I didn't make my question clear enough.
When opening Winamp, at the top there are 3 sections.
Left: Control buttons
Center: Description of Album playing
Right: Description of tracks
I was able to increase the font size of the Right section .
But as to the Left and Center sections, fonts remain very small unfort.
Just don't know where to adjust the font sizes
Am 75 yrs old retired and my eyes ain't what they used to be ( lol )
Is this a clearer picture ?

After enlightenment,

I was going to say that you use the "Big Bento" skin but it really does not help much. I'm not sure if there is even an option to edit the font sizes but you might want to try looking into a different skin.

If you don't know skin's are themes for winamp, you can download them here from the winamp website.

I am unaware of any large font skins though, if I had any knowledge on making modern skins I'd just make one for you but alas I do not.

How you get to this screen is right click on Win Amp go to Options > Preferences then select Playlist and then type in the font size you would like. I hope this helps.

not just the playlist

These people telling you that you can't get support without a useless amount of detail aren't well versed in thought. The question you asked should be simple enough to understand. If you don't understand the man's simple question, why are you wasting forum space by replying?

You can resize the text of everything (besides the playlist) by right-clicking the main window, then going to Window Settings>Scaling. The playlist font is still separately adjusted as Punky described. Skins have no effect on the font sizes.

Kind of ironic you picked a post well over a year old to make that observation. Don't you think.

Me too

I had just posted a new support thread asking this exact question, and then found this one - solutions stay useful until they don't work any more.

Many thanks, Goredrak! I agree with your first paragraph. And thanks for the simple solution.

Not sure why it said volume control was at 0... I never got far enough to even add files to the library and play something before.
