Add songs directly to playlist/bookmarks

Hello,
I stream music in my free time and so i have a large collection of songs. These songs are often played in the background for when i play games and im not streaming so it would be really nice if there was a shortcut to add a song to a playlist with having to alt-tab.
Does anyone know of a plugin or built in feature that can allow me to do this.

Maybe take advantage of the Winamp command line options.

To add a file to the Playlist Editor:
code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe" /ADD "W:\Music\Any Path\to\Song.mp3"

To bookmark a file:
code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe" /BOOKMARK "W:\Music\Any Path\to\Song.mp3"

To add a file to a library playlist:
code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe" /APPENDPLAYLIST <guid> "W:\Music\Any Path\to\Song.mp3"

<guid> is a unique identifier found in "%AppData%\Winamp\Plugins\ml\playlists\playlists.xml"
Playlists.xml is a text file that contains the descriptions of the library playlists, which are in the same folder.
They look like this: plf3660.m3u8, one for each library playlist.

So if <guid> for the playlist you want to add a song to is {19EFF69E-8C67-4E67-ADD6-3A255F4D5FFE}, the command looks like this:
code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe" /APPENDPLAYLIST {19EFF69E-8C67-4E67-ADD6-3A255F4D5FFE} "W:\Music\Any Path\to\Song.mp3"

To see all command line options:
code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe" /?

You could create desktop shortcuts for any desired command and drag and drop music files onto them.

I don't understand what you mean by "shortcut to add a song to a playlist with having to alt-tab."

Have some of the command line options changed in Winamp 5.9?

In version 5.8 I used the command,

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe" /ADD \\QUEUE D:\Download\1.mp3

to add a file to a playlist after the currently playing track but now it adds it to the end with the word QUEUE in the track before. Is there amy way to resolve this?

I have never tried any Winamp version after 5.666, so I can't comment on later versions.
There is a discussion about that command here.
It seems it worked for some installations, but not all. It never worked for me.
The command requires the JTFE plug-in, which is not included with Winamp 5.9.
