Main window not showing up

Hello, I am using the Winamp modern skin. A few minutes ago I recorded a video with fraps, and I accidently opened it with winamp. A winamp video window popped up, I closed it and then the main window dissapiered. The ''Main Window'' and ''Playlist Editor'' options are marked, but only the playlist shows up. Everything else can show up, but not the main window. I tried using the other skins, everything there works, the main window doesn't show only in ''Winamp Modern'' skin. Can someone help me?

Hi,

Try the Alt+W hotkey combination.

It may have been accidentally pushed off the screen. Try moving (click & drag) one of the visible Winamp windows while holding the Alt key. That will allow all windows to move together and maybe the main window appear back on screen. If not...

Hi,

If JonnyMac's suggestion doesn't work, try Alt+V to bring the video window back. The main window may be linked to it. If so, use the main context menu to select Options - Winamp Modern - Detach Video Window.

Yeah, thank you all for the help, but before you all replied I uninstalled the winamp, deleted all the files that are left in the pc, and when I installed it, everything was back to normal. Just had to optimize the color and equalizer like it was before.
