I am using Foobar2000 for some time and I can't manage to do one simple thing. I wan't to put my media library to the left sidebar, over the Album art panel.

Current state

For now, it works as a separate window. I've installed Foobar on my friend's PC recently and he was able to display his media library as an UI panel so I have no idea why I'm not able to do so. We both using the most up to date Foobar version.

This may be because you're using ColumnsUI instead of the default UI.

This has to do with the Layout that you've customized. You have a couple options:

  • Go to View -> Layout -> Quick Setup and pick a pre-defined layout to use.
  • Go to View -> Layout -> Enable Layout Editing Mode and add the album list panel wherever you like.
  • If you want to create a fresh view, go to View -> Layout -> Create Scratchbox and build a brand-new layout from scratch.
