Working with Playlists

We discussed how to use the Auto Playlist feature in Chapter 14, “Playback Time: Sorting, Viewing, and Controlling Your Music.” You may not have realized it at the time, but creating on-the-fly playlists based on what tunes you play, and when, is a capability that Media Center borrows from its sister application in Windows XP, the Windows Media Player.

tip

As an alternative method to creating a playlist from Windows Media Player, you can open the My Music folder from the Windows XP Start menu, and right-click on the songs you want to add. Choose Add to Playlist, and then choose an existing playlist from the drop-down box, or select New (see Figure 16.1).

Figure 16.1. In this view of the My Music folder, multiple tracks have been selected, using the Ctrl key, for adding to a new playlist.


If you want to add multiple songs at once, hold down the Ctrl key while you click on them, and then right-click on one of the selected files to complete the procedure.
