Rearranging song order of Playlists - Spotify Web

Hey guys - apologies in advance if this is super dumb. But I can't rearrange the song order in playlists I create...I thought you could sort alphabetically by artist/album/etc. or just drag songs up and down. But it doesn't work in any of my playlists. I use Spotify Free - is this only a feature in Premium? Thanks for the help!

Welcome to the community, agood1no!

 

You cannot rearrange playlists in Spotify WebPlayer. 😞 But if you download Spotify desktop client or use the mobile apps, you can rearrange playlists! I hope this solves your problem.

I'm sorry to say that it didn't help me, as I am using the desktop app and I can only move tracks about 10 spaces up or down at a time.  This is using the drag and drop method.  How do I move a track further up or down than 10 spots?

I'm sorry, I am able to click on a track and drag it down quickly more than 10 rows, to the bottom (if I hold it long enough with the mouse), it won't work to move it from the bottom of a playlist upward more than about 10 rows...

 

Someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong 😕

Thanks for reaching out, airfr8!

 

I have a simple fix to your problem. 😉 While dragging the song, drag the song above/below all of the other songs to make it scroll to where you want to drop your song. See how I did it in the attached animated photo!

 

If you need any more help (or if I was unclear), feel free to post again! 🙂

I'm just trying to figure out one good reason why the developers shouldn't allow playlist reordering.

Or even just sorting the playlist in the web player...

Is it possible to rearrange the songs on the desktop app and have it arranged the same way on the web app the next time I open it?  I'm asking because I do have the application at home but I listen to it at work on the web player since I don't have admin rights to install the app.
