OK, I found Cross-fade and Auto Volume Leveling and set the milliseconds that I wanted, but no joy. It doesn't seem to work. I did get the EQ to work. I do know that the cross-fade in Winamp depended on the buffering settings. Could this be the case here and if so, how do I adjust that?

Love in Christ
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
Ephesians 6:12, 13

Hi Marty,

My daughter wants me to DJ for her 16 birthday this Saturday. Her
play list is completed. I had planned to run the music from a
Windows 10 laptop running JAWS 2019 and Winamp which allows cross
fading of songs, but JAWS does not tell me which screen that I am in
nor does it let me arrow up and down through the play list as it used
to with Windows 7 on my desktop machine. I decided to use Windows
Media Player on the laptop which does let me arrow through the play
list and reads the tracks, but no cross fading feature. Is there a
plugin for Windows Media Player that will do this for me?I tried
looking at the plugin download menu option through the player, but no
joy.Just sound enhancers for surround sound.

You're in luck. You don't need any plugins to
crossfade files in Windows Media Player. When you
open the player, press control+3 to enable the
now playing options view. Right-click or context
menu key, then press E for Enhancements. That
will bring down a pulldown menu where the first
option is "crossfade and auto-volume leveling".
If you press enter on that, you'll be in a
dialogue with accessible controls: buttons to
turn on crossfade and auto-volume leveling, and a
slider/track bar for the amount of crossfade
milliseconds. From that dialogue, you will hear
buttons that say "Click for next" and "Click for
Previous Enhancement". The next enhancement after
crossfade and auto volume leveling is a 10-band
graphic equalizer. It will be on by default. Tab
to the button reading, "Set equalizer buttons to
move4 independently". You will then see sliders
for each equalizer band frequency, from 32 HZ to
16,000 HZ. 0 is flat; 14 is the highest possible
value. You can change these both with left and right, up and down arrows.
The next enhancement is play speed settings, and
the next is quiet mode, which functions like a
compressor/leveler. All the enhancement dialogues
consist of accessible buttons and sliders, so
have fun enhancing your Windows Media experience,
and happy birthday to your lovely daughter.
