How to Create a Playlist in iTunes

For many of us, using an iPod with iTunes is simple and second nature, but for a beginner, iTunes can be a confusing place. For this reason, I have created this how-to of how to create a playlist in iTunes.
Playlists are easy and fun. They allow us to have a good mix of songs to work out with, do household chores with, or just hang out with. Here is how to create a playlist in iTunes.

  1. First, you must open iTunes
  2. Once opened, click "File" > "New Playlist". For those of you who prefer to use command keys, you can press Ctrl+N, and it will do the same thing.
  3. You will be taken to a screen with no songs listed on it. This is your new playlist. It is titled "untitled playlist," and the title is highlighted. To change the title, simple type the desired title and then click anywhere else. If the title is no longer highlighted because you clicked elsewhere, simply click the title twice (slowly), and it will once again become highlighted.
  4. After the playlist is titled, you are ready to begin adding songs. To do this, simply go to your music collection by clicking "Music" on the left column and selecting the song you want from your collection. Once the desired song is selected, simply drag it on top of the playlist title. This will add the song to the playlist.
  5. Once multiple songs have been added, you can drag a song up or down in the list to change the song order.
  6. After all of the desired songs are in the playlist, simply connect your iPod and sync it with iTunes. Your playlist is now ready to be listened to.

Step 1:
an itunes account ?
b> An iPod is a portable media player that lets users listen to music wherever they are. Before you can listen to songs on the iPod, you must first put music onto the device. If you have been using different MP3 players in the past, adding music to an iPod can be slightly confusing. The reason for this is that iPods are not compatible with Windows Media Player, Real Player or Winamp. By using iTunes, however, you can add music to any iPod.

• Open iTunes. • 2 Add music to iTunes. To do this, click "File." Choose "Add Folder to Library." Then, find the folder on your computer that holds the music you wish to put onto the iPod. Highlight that folder and click "OK." The music will be put into the iTunes Library. • • 3 Plug the iPod into the computer. After a few seconds, you will see the iPod listed under "Devices" on the left-hand side of iTunes. • 4 Click "Music" under the "Library" option on the left-hand side of iTunes. All of the music files in the iTunes Library will then be shown in the middle of iTunes. • 5 Double-click the album that contains the music you want to put onto the iPod. The songs on that album will then be listed. • 6 Highlight the song you want to add to the iPod. • 7 Drag that file over to the name of your iPod located under "Devices" (as mentioned in Step 3). The song will then be placed onto the iPod. Do this for all of the music you want to put onto the iPod. • 8 Click the "All Albums" button at the top of iTunes to get back to the list of albums on the iTunes Library. • 9 Repeat Steps 5-7 until you are done putting music on the iPod. • 10 Disconnect the player when you are done.
