How do I select multiple songs?

On one of my playlists, I want to move multiple songs to another playlist. Its kind of a pain to drag them one by one to that new playlist.... Could anyone tell me how to select multiple tracks?

Re: How do I select multiple songs?

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 


Just hold down the ctrl key on your keyboard whilst selecting multiple tracks and then drag and drop them to where ever you like. If you want to select a big block of tracks, select the top one then hold the shift key and click on the last one, it will highlight all the tracks between the two you selected.

You're using the desktop client? You can't do this in the web player.

i just figured it out !!!! (: 


ALL you have to do is simply hold down the ctrl + shift at the SAME time then simply select one of the songs on the playlist and then the entire playlists highlights (turns baby blue) 


there you go !!(:
