Author Topic: New Tab opened when playing library shuffled via right click on user filter  (Read 579 times)

As the title suggests, whenever I try to right click a user filter for the library and select 'Play Library Shuffled' I get a new tab opened containing the filtered library. The music is also played (as expected) but getting the new tab is annoying. Is there any way to prevent this from happening? When I click 'Play Library Shuffled' I only expect that, not a view of the filtered library.


(Filter Name 'Exclude Movies')

Hope this can be fixed/solved.

Thank you very much in advance.

This is not a bug. It is a question. And I have moved it to the proper sub-forum.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

I'm afraid that this is how it works - when you right click a filter (or a playlist) to be played that filter (or playlist) is selected and you will be presented with a view of that filter (or playlist) - if you wanted that to change it would have to be requested on the wishlist board.

As for the new tab opening: If you right click on your MUSIC tab header and look at the Navigation Lock settings it is probably currently set to 'Full Lock'. You might want to set that to 'Partial Navigation' to prevent the new tab opening.
