Enqueue music files in Winamp by default

Learnt about this from a forum. When you double click a music file associated with Winamp, it directly plays that file.
Some music buffs tend to be more selective; they don't play the files right-away. They select multiple files and enqueue it in Winamp before playing.

Wouldn't it be better if you could just double click a music file to enqueue it in Winamp?
Yeah it can be done! But how?

In Windows,
1. Start Winamp. Hit Ctrl + P to open the preferences window.

2. Now in the left pane, select File Types and tick the 'Enqueue files on double click in Windows Explorer(default is unchecked)' checkbox.
3. Click Close to close the preferences window.

From now onwards, double clicking a file associated with winamp will enqueue it in winamp and not played by default. To enqueue any file, just double click it.
Hope you have fun.

If only it'd still work. Using the latest version of WinAmp, it clears my entire playlist when I double click on an MP3 file.
