These options deal with adding files using any way, whether it command line or drag and drop.

Controls the location of foobar2000 configuration files as well as lets you easily browse relevant folders.
==== Sort incoming files by ====
+
This option defines the way files are sorted in playlist, just when added. By default, it's %path_sort%.
+
==== Restrict incoming files to ====
+
Type what filenames are allowed to be added. It supports ? and * symbols for masks. By default, it's * (asterisk, which means “all files”). As an example, if you set it to “*.MPC”, only MPC (Musepack) files will be added in future.
+
==== Exclude file types ====
+
Opposite to the previous options, this forbids filenames to be added. It supports ? and * symbols for masks. Empty by default. As an example, if you set it to “*.WAV”, no WAV files will be added in future.
+
==== Commandline ====
+
These options deal with adding files from commandline (all other ways than opening from player or using drag & drop).
+
===== Bring to front when adding new files from commandline =====
+
Does what it says. If unchecked, will add files in background, without popping.
+
===== <s>Enqueue incoming files by default when adding from commandline</s> =====
+
<s>If marked, adding new files will not overwrite contents of playlist tracks are being added to.</s>
+
  
<small>This option has been moved to "Preferences > File Types" since 0.9.6. That preferences page is not available in Portable version, as no file type associations are managed then -- if you are associating file types themselves, use appropriate command line switches yourself (e.g. /add).</small>
+
Note that this option can not be changed in portable installs; they always store configuration data in the application install folder.
===== Always send to playlist =====
+
=== Mouse wheel: scroll the object currently below pointer rather than the object having focus ===
By default, foobar2000 adds files to the active playlist, this can be overridden here by checking the option and typing the name of playlist, eg “Temp”, or “Default”.
+
Toggles an alternate mouse wheel behavior.
=== Other ===
+
==== Enable user profile support ====
+
If checked, this checkbox will change the location where foobar2000.cfg is stored from the folder in which foobar2000.exe resides to the Application Data folder the local user's user folder.
+
==== Reset stop-after-current when stopping ====
+
One may use ''Playback > Stop after current'' in the main menu. Checking ''this'' flag will reset it after stopping.
+
==== Change selection with cursor when “playback / cursor follows playback” is enabled ====

Does what it says
