    Winamp wont Enqueue and Play


    This seems like a long shot, but there are lots of loyal llama fans out there in the world so why not?

    I use Winamp... wait wait, I really didn't mean to come off like this is an AA meeting.

    Lets start here:

    I finally upgraded to Win 8.1 last night. Should have done this two years ago.

    I'm still at the point where I'm trying to get Win 8 to be Win 7. I just want to be comfortable on my OS. I've largely succeeded thus far. Changed the things I could, and sought the strength to accept the things I could not change. (Ok this is getting bad.)

    Anyhow, I use Winamp and I just can't give it up. I use Enqueue settings so when I double click on a song in Explorer I don't want it to play immediately. I expect that Winamp will queue it and play it next.

    That's how it works on Win 7, and the settings are still there. I checked the boxes that needed to be checked, and made reparations to Windows 8 when I wronged it. . .

    Now I'm calling upon a higher power. Anyone out there?

    @4wd thanks.

    I figured this out. Apparently I needed to change the associations to another media player, change the Enqueue & Play Settings, and then reassociate Winamp as the default player.

    Somewhere in there is the trick.
