Organize columns/panels to function like old Winamp setup

Post by bkanvis » Fri Nov 10, 2017 7:30 pm

Hey all,
I'm trying to get MM to look as close to my old Winamp setup as possible, but I can't for the life of me seem to figure out how. With Winamp, I had three main panels and could add columns within them that I could use to sort their contents (such as by year, number of tracks, etc.). I know MM is super customizable, but so far I can only seem to add more columns, which are treated separately as they are not in the same panel. Also, I can't sort in any particular order within these columns, and I don't even see the options for things like "Year" or "Number of Tracks." I know this may sound really confusing so I've added screenshots below:

Thanks to anyone that may be able to help. Side question - Anyone know where I can find a skin that looks like the Big Bento one from Winamp?

There is only 1 FileListing and 1 Column Browser available to be displayed. MediaMonkey can be used in a 3 column setup, it takes a bit of drag & drop effort to set things up sometimes.

Can you drag and drop those columns to where you want when using the column browser option in views? Or, are they stuck at the top?

You can't drag columns, but most window elements can be dragged & dropped around the interface.

I meant while using the column browser option in views... THOSE columns can they be moved?

No, but you can change the amount of columns shown and what each column displays (right click on column headers to achieve this). The whole Column Browser window can be moved.
