    I was having the same issue with scalability on windows 11 using version 5.9
    The windows settings for scalability (and opacity) are not available from the windows classic skin, at least not so far as I could manage to bring them up by any means.
    Switch first to the Bento skin and then right click on the Winamp title and...voila!, you'll be able to resize the player again!

    The letters are still kind of small but my goal was to squeeze in as much info as possible, without bloating window of Winamp [and other programs]

    Couple of further issues though

    Used the scaling option which fixes the majority of issues, but the artwork, in the View Info section is too small, and likewise when a new track comes on the little preview box which is separate is also very small.

    Does anyone know how to change these? To make them larger, I'm currently scaling at 200%.

    Thanks
    Mike

    Windows Settings - Scalability

    Just discovered a partial solution thanks to Aminfu.

    Open the player's context menu (right-click on it's title bar) and point to the "Windows Settings - Scaling" command (near the bottom of the menu listing). Choose one of the options in the list that appears or make a custom percentage change.

    The artwork in the view file info is not quite the right size, but I'll see how I get on.

    Thanks

    Windows 10 Scalability

    Hi,

    I've used Winamp for 20 years plus and think it is great, so thanks to the dev team.

    Since moving to Windows 10 it would be good to take advantage of the scalability feature, as I like to use my screen on max resolution (3840 x 2160 for example), and then use the advanced scaling setting to get the best size for the windows apps. Unfortunately Winamp doesn't scale up in line with the windows settings and stays very small.
    Changing the size manually doesn't allow the box in the right corner to have more than 3 lines. I use the Big Bento skin, and the font size of the tracklisting in the history is ideal, but the font size in the top left corner and top middle boxes are miniscule.
    Is there anyway to change these sizes?
    Is any work being done on this at the moment?

    Thanks
    Mike
