The Default User Interface, often abbreviated as DUI, is included with the standard foobar2000 installation package.


  • Allows complex layout using building blocks that are called UI Elements.
  • Focus on instant usability and easy configuration; it deliberately does not offer total visual customization and reduces the use of title formatting.
  • The Quick Appearance Setup window lets users choose from a set of predefined layouts, color schemes, and playlist configurations.
  • The layout editing mode and scratchboxes allow in-place configuration of the layout with Copy & Paste functionality.
  • The current configuration can be exported as a theme for archiving or transfer to another foobar2000 installation.


  • UI Elements are conceptually similar to the panels introduced by Columns UI, but are incompatible with them so they were given a new name.
  • List of UI Elements contains basic information about the available UI elements.
