Hi there,

First of all, I'd like to thank you guys for MPC development. I know it's free and I know your are doing a lot of work. Now to the not-so-pleasant things.

I'm using MPC for the last ten years or so but now this is the first time I'm discovering so many issues, bugs and UI lacks.

For instance, there is a problem with serialization of the settings. Suddenly some of them somehow were reset (a checked checkbox for 'Thumbnal preview' was unchecked and so on). The others were not. Even worse, some of them look untouched ('Remember file position', for instance, it is checked) but behaves as ones that were reset (file position is not being remembered).

Well, I'm kinda backup dude, of course I had exported all my settings to an external file before it started. So, I opened the 'Options' dialog, the section with the 'Export' and 'Export keys' button... Ehm, where the 'Import' button's gone? Why do I need making backups if I cannot use them?

Mouse focus is lost after I do something in the Playlist, I cannot use mouse wheel for changing volume after that.

Though I made MPC a singleton ('The same window for all files'), when I choose 'Open in MPC' in Explorer, a bunch of windows are open. Shell integration is about totally useless for me now.

Every time I update, I see something new is broken and doesn't work anymore. It is so for the latest several months or so. Is it possible to keep the program more stable as it was before? Thank you!

Middle-mousebutton-click on the seekbar disables the preview. Maybe that happened.

Export settings creates a .reg file. To import such a registry key backup, you simply double-click on that file. For best results you should reset the settings before importing a backup.
You can also backup/restore with the Codec Tweak Tool, which takes care of everything for you.

File history is limited to last 50 files (you can increase in advanced options).

Playlist is a different window that the main one. Clicking on an item in the playlist to play it should transfer focus to main window.

The Explorer problem is a flaw in Windows. That opens multiple instances. MPC-HC tries to redirect those actions to the first instance, but apparently that goes wrong sometimes in your case.
Three correct way to add files:
1) Use "Add to MPC-HC playlist"
2) Drag&drop your selection onto MPC-HC. Hold Ctrl to append to playlist, without Ctrl it replaces current playlist.
3) Use the MPC-HC entry in the explorer "Send To" submenu. That sends the selection to one instance.

None of your issues are related to recent changes.
