    One of the things I like about WMP is the sidebar that shows all the tracks of the album I am playing. I was wondering if it was possible to get Groove to do the same thing?

    WMP Will Not Save Playlist

    I have a new computer with Win 10 Home installed. I am trying to use WMP and create some music playlists. When I create a list of songs and try to save them as a playlist I get a pop-up that says: "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while creating or saving the playlist". I have clicked on "Web Help" in the pop-up box and tried all the suggested solutions, but none of them have solved the problem. Can you please help.

    WMP Will Not Save Playlist

    Update: I have done a few things since posting:
    1. I have shut off WMP by going to Control Panel, typing in "windows features', finding WMP and 'unchecked' the box. Then 'restarted' my computer. Then I went back to Control Panel (as before) and 'checked' the WMP box. I was lead to believe that this would reset WMP, but it did not work.

    2. As stated in my original post: I clicked on "Web Help" that is part of the pop-up that says 'Windows Media Player encountered a problem while creating or saving the playlist'. I followed the suggested solutions (2) but that did not work either.

    3. This problem occurs if I put in music files on the right hand side of WMP and try to save to a playlist by using the 'save' button, OR trying to 'create' a playlist on the left hand side of WMP.

    Thanks for any help!

  4. How do I get Groove to show a playlist when I select 'play all' like WMP?

    Using Groove music in win 10, remove a song from playlist does not remove it

    That will remove a song if you are in playlist mode, but it really does not work from a practical perspective.

    I'm listening to a playlist. I want to remove a song.

    The playlist shows, BUT the song that is being played does not show on the screen, where the list of songs is, the playlist is just shown, looks like from the beginning.

    So, if you hit select now, there is no way to "find" the song..

    If you hit "now playing", then indeed the song will show up in the list, and then you can hit the select, get the check boxes, BUT now the option to remove from the playlist is NOT shown, you can only DELETE the song.

    The problem is that you cannot get the song that is playing to the select list without hitting the now playing button, and then you have apparently shifted from the playlist view to the now playing view, and you don't have the context of the playlist to
    remove the song...

    It's a terrible user interface and makes the playlist a joke.

    I'll mess around with it some more, but this should be a simple, intuitive operation, not an exercise in computer science against a flawed user interface.

    Thanks for your suggestion, I will see if there is some way to "trick" groove music.
