Default Re: How to see Playlist in dropdown?

But there's nothing in the Playlist box, or available from its dropdown, even though I thought I'd saved the list as a Playlist, which I labeled and saved in My Docs.
"There is nothing in the playlist box"... You may have bumped into a bug there. Anyhow: you can load a previously saved playlist by right-clicking in the playlist window and then select "Load from file..." (By the way if the PL pops-up automatically, this simply means you didn't close it during your previous BS.Player-session. You can close playlist-window like any normal window ([x] at top right) or by clicking on the (PL)-button of the (default-)skin (=control panel). Ditto for opening ML (Media Library) and closing ML.

Yes, the list of tracks shown is a playlist. You can add files to it or delete or ... (check out the menu following right-click). To be able to use different play-lists, you must save them as a file.

How to make a playlist? By simply dropping files on it, or by rightclick and then adding files or folders/directories or load from ML (Media Library). It is entirely up to you to decide where to save a playlist and in which format.

When posting always mention your computer's OS and the version and build number(!) of BS.Player as used by you,
as well as - if applicable and especially when encountering problems - the type(s) of the file(s) mentioned in your post.
