Organizing Your Playlists

In this lesson for iTunes on the Mac, we are going to look at how we organize our playlists including how we can combine playlists and create folders for our playlists.

Combining Playlists
To combine playlists, you drag one playlist on top of another. When you do this, you’ll see a number around your cursor. This will show how many songs are going to be added to the playlist you are adding to. If both playlists have the same songs in them, iTunes will show you a dialog telling you that duplicates are being added. From there you can add the duplicates or skip them.

Deleting Playlists
To delete a playlist, we just select it and then we control-click on it, hold down the control key and click not eh playlist you want to delete. A menu will pop up with various options, just select delete. When you delete a playlist, it does not delete the songs from your library, it only deletes the playlist.

Creating Folders
To create a folder for your playlists, you fo up to File in the menu bar. Select New and a submenu will open where you can select New Playlist Folder. Click on it to rename it and now just drag the playlists you want into the new folder. You can also drag playlists out of a folder if you no longer want them in there.
