how to just show song name????

hi, i have organsied my music on my harddrive in alphabeticle order. but when i play a track using winamp it actually shows track title and artist, which for most ppl is fine. but my music is organised by file name.
e.g. i organise as;

Beyonce Knowles - Baby Boy
Beyonce Knowles - Irreplaceble

but when i play 'Beyonce Knowles - Baby Boy' it will show
" beyonce knowles - track3" on the screen.
i understand this happens bcoz the 'track title' is set to track3, but i have saved the file name as "Beyonce Knowles - Baby Boy" and would like just this showing on screen. is there any way to do this. to show the file name instead of track title?
oh yea im using v2.9(i know its old, it works best with my carputer )
kind regards

In 5.33: Preferences > Titles > Advanced title formatting: $filepart(%filename%)

No idea whether that also works with 2.9.
[insert standard recommendation to switch to 5.33 Lite (or Full with all the stuff you don't need unchecked in the installer) because 2.9 is buggy and no longer supported, Winamp 5 is Winamp 2 etc.]
