In WMP 11 I just click on Header of list of Albums or songs and it is in alpabetic. If an album is not where I want it I RT-click on album and edit name as reqd.

Hi there, I will try it in wmp 20, however if i was to download wmp 11, will it wipe out all of my playlists?

Thanks for help so far

I should have thought you would not need to upgrade to solve your listing problem. I am sure you should be able to save your playlist in a different place. I keep all my music in folders on an external hard drive and I have seen a playlist folder on the hardrive. I expect if you check HELP in wmp re playlist you should find some info about saving file. Each time I add any music (rip) the output goes to Ext Drive. When I plug in the drive I click WMP Library Tab an use option to add files. The new music takes its place alphabetically in song or album list. I even build playlists based on Star Ratings I have no idea if an upgrade removes playlists but your music will still be in it's own folders as usual. A copy of music file offline has got to be a good move. Dont use both at same time though because WMP will show a duplicate track on all your music titles until you remove the Extra Ext Drive from use. I only have my music off the PC Laptop to conserve Space on my machines.

I have checked WMP and see that if I click the TITLE panel at the top of list all the sons go into A-Z order another click and they go to Z-A a third click puts them back to songs by album A-Z
This must be same as ver 10!
