Why can't I move songs around in the player?

I used and loved Winamp for many years. When it started getting harder to use, I looked for other options. I've been consistently dissatisfied with the other players I've tried, so I'm trying Winamp again. I downloaded Winamp 5 with no problems, and I dragged and dropped some songs into the window. My question is can I rearrange the songs in the player? In the old Winamp years ago, I used to easily drag songs up and down the list to arrange them as I pleased. Is that no longer an option?


I have Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393
Desktop-FPDKKER
Manufactured by Dell
System model- Latitude E7450
System Type- x6-Based PC
System SKU- 062E
Processor- Intel core
BIOS Version- Dell Inc. A13
SMBIOS Version- 2.8

Yes.
Either by drag and drop or by using the Sort menu, which is exposed by clicking the "MISC" button.

Afaik, that is not an option: it can't be turned off.

I don't see a way to do either of those things. I have a list of songs in the player now. When I try to drag one of them, nothing happens. And I don't see a sort button. Where is it?

I can't explain why nothing happens. If you can drag and drop shortcuts on the desktop, you should be able to d & d a Winamp playlist entry.

You can see the Sort menu by clicking the "MISC" button. It's in the lower left.

I think I must have a different version. There is no misc button.
