iTunes 10 for Mac: Create a playlist
You might want to create playlists to suit specific moods, to organize songs with a certain theme, or to group songs you want to burn to a CD.
In addition to songs, playlists can include audiobooks, videos, podcasts, Internet radio stations, PDFs, and other items. (You can listen to radio stations in a playlist only when you’re connected to the Internet.)
A standard playlist has this icon next to it.
To create a playlist:
Do one of the following:
To create an empty playlist, deselect all songs (click the iTunes window) and choose File > New Playlist, or click the Add button in the bottom-left corner of the iTunes window.
To create a playlist containing selected songs, Command-click to select the songs and choose File > “New Playlist from Selection.”
Type a name for the playlist.
Click Music (or another item below Library) and drag an item to the playlist.
To select multiple items, hold down the Command or Shift key while you click.
Drag until a green plus sign appears.
To remove an item from a playlist, select it and press the Delete key (this does not remove the item from your library or hard disk).
