  • windowshade mode has large blank window

    I was using a window resizing program and accidentally resized winamp's windowshade height. Unfortunately, the program cannot restore the normal height and there's no other way I can find to adjust the height (windowshade mode, normally no need to adjust the size). Now, there's a blank window about 1000 pixels tall underneath the windowshade. I can adjust the width of winamp, and the width of the blank window below it also changes size. Changing themes doesn't make it go away. I've attached an image of the issue. Any help?

    While Winamp is not running, delete the studio.xnf file. That will reset modern skin settings to the default and helps to correct many funky modern skin issues. Depending on the Winamp install, studio.xnf can be found in...

    C:\Program Files\Winamp


    %appdata%\Winamp Where %appdata% is a shortcut to the 'Application Data'/'User Settings' folder. You can click on the Start button > click the Run icon and put %appdata%\Winamp in the Open box and click OK. That should bring you to the Winamp settings folder in 'Application Data'/'User Settings'.

    The actual path will vary with the current Windows version you are using. Example...

    Windows 2000 Windows XP
    C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Application Data\Winamp

    Windows Vista Windows 7
