The main panel contains several tools to navigate your Library. The most visible of these is the Media Tree which contains various nodes that allow you to browse content by Collections, different attributes like Title, Artist and Genre, Podcasts, Playlists, Media Servers, Net Radio, My Computer, CD/DVD Drives and Portable/Audio Devices. To navigate, select and browse by any node, using the mouse or arrows keys, or by typing text. To fine-tune the results, you can use:

  • The Column Browser to select particular attributes
  • The Search bar to search the contents of the selected node or the entire library (configurable)
  • Column headers to sort by any attribute. Hold the <Ctrl> key while clicking multiple headers to sort by multiple attributes.

Starting from the top, here's a brief description of the various other functions in the main panel:

  • The View toolbar allows you to switch to the Art, Art with Details, Art Browser with Details views and/or enable the Column Browser.
  • The Navigation toolbar allows you to view where you are in the Library hierarchy, and change locations.
  • The Shortcuts toolbar quickly brings you to various nodes that may not be visible, or switch back and forth between nodes.
  • The Now Playing window displays the currently active playlist.
  • The Album Art window shows art for the selected or currently playing track (configurable).
  • The Player displays the currently playing Media File.
  • The Status bar under the Filelist shows information about currently selected or playing Media File(s), along with status information about any ongoing background activities. Any background activities can be terminated, or increased/decreased in priority by right-clicking on the Status bar.
