I've been able to do this before; but for whatever reason, I don't seem to be able to do so now.

 

In my list of songs for in a playlist, I was able to click and drag a song up or down to where I wanted it; like if I wanted one song to be the 5th song and another one to be the 3rd, etc..

 

That's not working for me now. I've already tried going to Controls >> Shuffle >> Turn Shuffle Off (as well as On) etc..

 

Any suggestions anyone??

 

I was able to do this just last week too.. so I don't get what's changed since then or whatever.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

 

Thank you!!

    Click the heading of the left most column of numbers.

    At the top of the playlist select Sort by and select Manual Order.

    The instructions above are for iTunes 11.

     

    As tt2 noted, click the first column header with the numbers (it's the very first column as shown in your screenshot),

    You can then drag songs up/down in the playlist.

    In the screenshot above there is a small black triangle in the heading of the Plays column, pointing down so that determines the order. Clicking a different heading gives that priority. The left-most, unlabeled, column of numbers is the Play Order, only when this is selected as the sort column can you drag things up & down by hand.

     

    I remember the name, but not the conversation. I sync my contacts & calendars with an Exchange server so I'm not the best person for advice on syncing with Outlook directly. This support doc may help though. HT1692 - iPhone, iPad, iPod touch: Troubleshooting contact and calendar syncing via USB on Windows.
