Windows 10 Scalability

Hi,

I've used Winamp for 20 years plus and think it is great, so thanks to the dev team.

Since moving to Windows 10 it would be good to take advantage of the scalability feature, as I like to use my screen on max resolution (3840 x 2160 for example), and then use the advanced scaling setting to get the best size for the windows apps. Unfortunately Winamp doesn't scale up in line with the windows settings and stays very small.
Changing the size manually doesn't allow the box in the right corner to have more than 3 lines. I use the Big Bento skin, and the font size of the tracklisting in the history is ideal, but the font size in the top left corner and top middle boxes are miniscule.
Is there anyway to change these sizes?
Is any work being done on this at the moment?

Thanks
Mike

Windows Settings - Scalability

Just discovered a partial solution thanks to Aminfu.

Open the player's context menu (right-click on it's title bar) and point to the "Windows Settings - Scaling" command (near the bottom of the menu listing). Choose one of the options in the list that appears or make a custom percentage change.

The artwork in the view file info is not quite the right size, but I'll see how I get on.

Thanks

Couple of further issues though

Used the scaling option which fixes the majority of issues, but the artwork, in the View Info section is too small, and likewise when a new track comes on the little preview box which is separate is also very small.

Does anyone know how to change these? To make them larger, I'm currently scaling at 200%.

Thanks
Mike

I am running Winamp 5.666 Pro Build 3516 o 3840 x 1660 resolution, with Windows 10 Enterprise 20H2 19042.746 x64 set to

Setting > Ease Of Access > Display > Make everything bigger > Change the size of apps and text on the main display > 150%

and fonts is Winamp set to

A]

Options > Preferences > Playlist > Playlist Editor Appearance

Playlist font size in pixels: 11
Use font: PT Sans Narrow



B]

Options > Preferences > Skins > Modern Skins > Font Rendering > Font > Font Mapper > TrueType replacement for Winamp Charset Bitmap Fonts > Replace with

Courier New
149%



C]

1] Options > Preferences > Skins > Modern Skins > Font Rendering > Font Rendering > Font Mapper > Use skin font mapper
2] Options > Preferences > Skins > Modern Skins > Font Rendering > Font Rendering > Font Mapper > Configure skin font mapping > All skins > Map font > Arial
3] Options > Preferences > Skins > Modern Skins > Font Rendering > Font Rendering > Font Mapper > Configure skin font mapping > Into > PT Sans
4] Options > Preferences > Skins > Modern Skins > Font Rendering > Font Rendering > Font Mapper > Configure skin font mapping > New
5] Options > Preferences > Skins > Modern Skins > Font Rendering > Font Rendering > Font Mapper > Configure skin font mapping > Set



The letters are still kind of small but my goal was to squeeze in as much info as possible, without bloating window of Winamp [and other programs]

I was having the same issue with scalability on windows 11 using version 5.9
The windows settings for scalability (and opacity) are not available from the windows classic skin, at least not so far as I could manage to bring them up by any means.
Switch first to the Bento skin and then right click on the Winamp title and...voila!, you'll be able to resize the player again!
