A playlist is a saved set of music tracks you can create yourself — like building a personal music album. You might create a playlist for a party or road trip, for example.

To create a playlist, follow these steps:

  1. From the Start menu, click the Groove Music tile. The Groove Music app appears.

  2. Click the New Playlist button. In the field that appears, type the name of the playlist and click Save.

  3. Click a tab such as Albums or Songs; the library contents appear. If you choose Albums or Artists, click an item to show the list of related songs.

  4. Click a song or album and then click the Add To button (shaped like a plus sign); click the name of the playlist you want to add the song or album to from the list that appears.

    Repeat this step to locate additional titles to add to the playlist.

To play a playlist, follow these steps:

  1. Click its name in the left pane and then click the Play button at the top of the screen.

  2. You can reorganize music in playlists by clicking a song and dragging it to another location in the list.
