Note that certain features of this page are available on standard foobar2000 installs only; not on portable installs.

Set program associations

Opens the Windows control panel allowing you to associate supported file types with foobar2000.

Note that this button is available on Windows Vista and newer only. If you are using Windows XP, use the File Types preferences page to associate specific file types with foobar2000.

Set as the default audio CD player

Allows you to set foobar2000 as the system default audio CD player.

Folder context menus

Toggles "play in foobar2000" and "enqueue in foobar2000" context menus on folders in Windows Explorer.

Set "enqueue" as the default action

Sets "enqueue in foobar2000" as the default (double-click) action, rather than "play in foobar2000".

Bring to front when adding new files

Toggles whether the main foobar2000 is activated when new files are added.

Always send new files to playlist

Enabling this feature causes all files newly added through Windows Shell to be put in a specific playlist rather than in the currently active playlist.

Sort incoming files

Controls how newly added files are sorted. The pattern is based on title formatting.

Restrict incoming files, exclude file types

Allows you to selectively ignore specific types of files in added folders.

"Restrict incoming files" should be set to "*" unless you explicitly want to allow only files matching some criteria to be added.

"Exclude file types" can be set to empty to allow all types. By default, it is set to "*.CUE" to ignore cuesheets when adding whole folders.
