Its a usability-issue because this is not a normal behaviour off apps on Windows 10. ;)

While preparing new tracks for my traktor-collection, I'm skipping fast with Winamp through the new tracks of a EP or a VA before. This is very handy because Winamp can handle it very easy with a single click on a audio-file. if I dislike a single track inside a package, then I can simply press stop, delete the file before I start listening to the next track. This is really annoying when you skip through more than 10 tracks and you stuck erytime while you have to load another track and the playback starts before you can delete the current one. :o

The file is open/locked in the 'stop' condition and should not be able to delete. As it should be. If you must delete with the app still running simply load/play a new file. How is this an issue?

Maybe you are going completely wrong here because this is not true. Let me give you another example for Windows. Create a txt-File, open it with the editor and try to delete - it works. I can also use each other app in Windows like Adobe Audition, which is more in context to the issue. If I loaded a file into Adobe Audition and the playpack is stopped, I can delete it. Only if the file is on pause or while Adobe Audition is saving this file, then it is locked. The same fore Windows Media Player, VLC etc...  ::)

Ok I tested it again. Rename a file works (sorry) but after pressed stop I can't delete it. I have to close WACUP before. It affects AIF, AIFF, WAV, mp3. Reproduce: Play a file, press stop and try to delete it.

If I played a file and pressed stop, I can't rename or delete the played file. I have to close WACUP or I have to load another before I get the File access the file. This happend only in WACUP. In WINAMP 5.666 I don't get this behavior. I'm using the preview-build

Stumbled across scaling issues with winamp on my new 4k screens to this skin. It works great. Thanks for this. And also a big shout out to DrO for his great work on WACUP. Now I found time to test it finally. Cheers. ;)
