Let me clear this up. After 20 minutes of exploring Spotify on PC, knowing it's possible as I've done it before. All you need to do is click the icons on top of the songs when you reach a playlist youll see this (the image) and click it. To sort it by that. If you don't hover your cursor over it, it won't show.

On the PC Spotify program, you can sort songs in your Playlists and rearrange them, but you can do neither with the songs under your saved Artists. As stated before in this thread, these are listed in the order in which you "Saved" them. It's astounding that even now in 2018 this gaping oversight still hasn't been resolved by Spotify.

Please. Fix. This.

Hi rhondacecala

 

You can sort your spotify playlists on pc (or mac) by clicking and dragging the desired playlist up or down and placing it in the order you wish for, this applies in the spotify program. 

 

I hope my answer was helpful regarding your issue.

 

Yours Sincerely,

You can sort playlists on pc you just have to click the title, artist, album, date, or length of song (right above the songs in the playlist)

it does not work. I just want to sort by Artist on my PC. When I click Artist it tells me to go to Browse page.

Hard to believe I still can't order my playlists on Spotify in 2020 (not the songs within the playlist but the actually playlists).
Since there has been some confusion about the request over the past 4 years, please imagine the following are playlist titles, sorted in alphabetical order. We would like to sort by clicking 1 simple "sort" icon/button/link, keeping the option to drag and drop to reorder.

Web Version Should Playlist Sorting as Well

At a minimum, we would like to be able to sort by:
Playlist title
Date created

It would also be nice to sort by:
- Most recently listened to
- Duration of playlist
- Number of tracks or in a playlist

If anyone at Spotify needs help understanding this, I can provide resources in the form of skilled developers or tutorials on how to implement a sort feature for an ordered list.

We're all looking forward to the feature, not just a message saying you will consider it. Thanks!

You can sort playlists on Spotify's Windows App (likely Mac or others as well). What you need to do is go into the playlist and click once on what you want to sort by (Title, Artist, Album or Date Added). That sorts title, artist and album as A-Z and date added to most recent first. If you click twice, it will sort title, artist and album as Z-A and date added to most recent last.

This does not work on a mac or windows, as the feature does not exist. We want to be able to choose how ALL our playlists are organized, so if we want to find a particular playlist out of many different ones its easier. The feature exists for Albums and Artists, but not for playlists for some odd reason. PLEASE FIX THIS BUG and delete the auto sorting function as no one likes this feature.

 

This is the feature we ant for albums radio and playlists; https://support.spotify.com/us/using_spotify/features/sorting-and-filtering/

 

See how it exist for one and not the other, only MANUAL SORTING:
