I just created another Playlist, but it wasn't posted in alphabetical order. How can  I do this?

    When you click on "Name" in the playlist, you should see that vertical arrow (that appears in the leftmost column in my screen shot) move to the "Name" column and all the songs become alphabetized.

    It is of interest.  We will need more information to help you therefore.  You will have to tell us what you did to create this playlist that is unusual.

    It might be of interest that I am unable to drag songs inton the Playlist in question and, unlike the the other Playlists, it doesn't have a music note in front of it.

    What doe sit have in front of it?

     

    If it's a gear, it is a smart playlist.

    You cannot add songs to a smart playlist.

    They are selected by the criteria of the smart playlist.

    To change the criteria, select the playlist then right click - Edit smart playlist.
