So, I've had to go on this forum to learn that playlist folders are not supported currently in Spotify. This is misleading because I there is an option to create a playlist folder on desktop PC version. I can create the folder (and see it on the mobile iOS app) but I cannot add anything to the folder. Really wish playlist folders were still an option, it helps so much with music organization (and therefore, enjoyment of Spotify).

Hey @Zeek13. Thanks for clarifying your issue. We definitely want to make sure you can organize your playlist folders, so let's work on getting that operational!
I've attached a quick GIF demonstrating drag and drop adding of playlists to playlist folders, just to be sure we're on the same page. However, it sounds to me like your Spotify desktop app might need a reinstall if it won't let you drag and drop like shown in the GIF below.
I went to File > New Playlist Folder, even though it doesn't show that in the GIF.
Let me know if this allows you to drag and drop playlists into folders properly. If not, I'll rope in one of the other Rock Stars who may have a better suggestion that works for you.
I finally found an actual solution to this! I tried Spotify's suggestion of re-installing, but it did not work. I created each playlist folder I wanted, then opened Spotify on my mobile device, and clicked on the new playlist folder where it tells you it's empty and gives you option of creating a playlist. Do that and call it something random. Once this blank playlist is created, you can go back to your desktop client and drag and drop into the playlist folder with the playlists you already have. It appears that the problem is the desktop spotify won't let you drag and drop already-created playlists into the folder if it doesn't have any playlists in it yet. Annoying but this work-around worked for me. Hopefully it does for you!
