Where are you selecting the second song from?  File tree, database, or playlist viewer?

Hello cchheeaa.

I have an iPod 5G too (always running the latest stable version since November 2009) but I don't remember that the screen ever changed to the WPS after selecting an other song in the current playlist view. I checked all the settings but couldn't find how to change that behaviour. What I do, when I want to go to the WPS after selecting an other song in the current playlist is pressing "Play", so it's just one more button press. But I agree with you, that a setting would be nice to change the screen automatically to the WPS. (Or is there one, that I didn't find?)

Hope that anyone can put more light on that issue.

Greetings c_k.

No, it doesn't go back automatically, as you might want to do more things such as change the order of tracks etc.

hmm...i coulda sworn that it went back to the WPS automatically but maybe im trippin....But thanks for all the support guys, you have been very helpful.  I guess i just have to press the "play" button.
