Dialog Overview

Standard preferences dialog for foobar2000 v0.9.2 is shown on the picture. You can access it through the foobar2000 main menu item (File > Preferences) or by hitting Ctrl+P (by default).

The sidebar on the left selects which page of preferences is displayed on the area to the right. The preferences page displayed on the screenshot is Components.

There are buttons at the bottom of the right area, which appear no matter what page you selected. Reset all will reset the whole configuration, including Media Library and playlists of foobar2000. Pressing Reset page (new in v0.9) will reset only the current page's settings; this button is active only when component or page supports it. Help will open the corresponding wiki page on Hydrogenaudio, in the default browser. Save all is used to save the configuration, playlists and the Media Library, to remember the changes, in case foobar2000 crashes. And, finally, Close closes foobar2000 Preferences.

Legacy preferences support here: Foobar2000:Preferences (v0.8.3)


Components page

This is the Components page. It contains a list of all of the components installed, and allows you to find out about the components. By clicking on the table headers, you can sort the list by component name, DLL name or version. For many of the components (for example, Standard DSP array), if you double click an item in the list you get a popup with more detailed information.


This is the Display page. It allows for selection of user interface and several other display-related options.
