Need Skin(s) Recommendation(s)

My wife and I are upper middle age, and our eyesight is starting to go. My wife is also not the most computer savvy kid on the block. What skin(s) would you suggest for ease of use with clear, enlargeable type? I want to rip our CD's and make personalized play lists us both.

Thanks for the help.
Steve

I would suggets you "HOLOlike" (link) or Minimal (link), altough its fonts aren´t really large (you wont find a lot like that..), it has a clear design indeed (plus some big buttons).

For the Playlist / Media library items you can increase font size by using "Ctrl" and "+" or "-".

Tell me how you find it.

Thanks for the feedback

I've gotten used to Winamp Modern - still would like larger font size but can't get it to change either in preference menu of with ctrl+

Any thoughts?

Haha then why you ask for other skin suggestions?

Ctrl and + or - works while clicking in the playlist or media library Window (if I don't remember wrong).
What you can't get bigger are the fonts of the menus (file - view - etc).

it's Ctrl + NumPad Plus (increment) or Ctrl + NumPad Minus (decrement) to alter the size in the main playlist editor and assumes that the library and other windows are setup to use that font. alternative just go via preferences -> playlist and change the font size there.

if Winamp Modern is what is liked, you can just alter the scaling of the windows (in-conjunction with the above adjustment) via the main right-click menu -> window settings -> scaling. it'll make things a bit blurry but it'll make it bigger to see.

additionally, if not already, install v5.65 or the Labs build as that has some higher DPI scaling improvements for dialogs, etc when the Windows OS setting is set to show text at 125% and higher (though there's more work to be done as part of the Labs build to improve all of that).

Works great!

DrO,
Thank you, I can see! The secret is to be in the playlist editor, I kept trying in the "library" which didn't work.
Loving the program more everyday.
Thanks
Steve

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
