I have winamp ver 2.62. How the heck do you sort the play list by file name/artist name? Winamp seems to list the songs in the playlist in a random order even for files within the same directory. Maybe this sorting feature should be included. Sorting based on artist name, file name, album name, song name, song length..... Somebody please help. I have a whole load of mp3s and looking for one with the name is hell in Winamp.

At the bottom of the playlist editor window there is a series of buttons.
Click on "Misc -> Sort" and choose one of the options from there.

Laterzzzz.

Actually the sort won't work properly until you get Winamp to recognize all of the songs in the playlist. Do this by SLOWLY scrolling down the playlist - you'll hear the hard disk chattering while this is being done. Then scroll up a little fatsre to ensure that all the entries have been picked up. After that the sort will work OK.

The sorting worked fine. Is there anyway to make the sorting default (whenever winamp loads files)? What does the "sort on load" option in the preferences do?
