Where did the "Library Manager" go?

There probably is a really simple solution that I'm too stupid to figure out. Anyways...

I've been using Winamp for some years now. I got a new computer and installed the beloved media player on it and noticed that something was missing. If my memory serves me right when you are browsing through your media library under "Local Media" there is normally a box in which you can select a particular artist, and beneath that box (where it shows each individual song in your library) it will then only display songs from that artist.

Hopefully I'm making sense, as I'm not much good at articulating my thoughts to text.
Well the box in which you can select individual artists in your library to browse through, is no longer there. I also remember the buttons to control this feature being next to the search bar at the top of the media library, well these are absent as well. So I am calling upon all you smart folks for help, as this was one of my favorite features of Winamp. Thanks so much in advance!

Hi

The "Local Library > Audio" view should be set up that way, by default.
Though the Local Library (pka: Local Media) root view isn't, nor are some of the other views underneath...

To edit a view, right-click it in the Media Library tree, and select "Edit View"

Change the "Filters" from "Simple" to "Two" or "Three".
Select the desired Filters underneath (eg. Album Artist / Album)

(note that the root view can't be edited)

Gosh, can't believe I forgot that the "Local Library" expands into a tree. Such a simple solution. Of course "Audio" is set up just how I remember. Thank you, many times over!
