For Seniors: Create a Music Playlist in Windows Media Player
Use Windows Media Player to play music on your laptop. To play specific songs in order, create a music playlist. A playlist in Windows Media Player is a saved set of music tracks you can create yourself — like building a personal music album.
Choose Start→All Programs→Windows Media Player.
Windows Media Player starts.
Click the Library button, click the Create Playlist button, and then type a name for the playlist.
Click anywhere outside the playlist to save the name.
Double-click a category (for example, Music) to display libraries, and then double-click a library in the left pane.
The library contents appear.
Click an item and then drag it to the new playlist in the Navigation pane.
Repeat this step to locate additional titles to add to the playlist.
To play a playlist, click it in the Library pane and then click the Play button.
The songs in the playlist begins to play.
Change the order in which the songs are played by clicking the Organize button and then choosing Sort By.
In the submenu that appears, sort by features such as title, artist, or release date.
You can also right-click a playlist in the Library pane and choose Play to play it or choose Delete to delete the list, though the original tracks (music files) that make up the list still exist.
