How to organize playlists on desktop

My Question or Issue


This is getting infuriating. On iOS, I can sort my playlists by ABC, or date created. Why can't I do this on desktop? I don't want the massive "LIKED SONGS" when I'm trying to find a playlist, which I can't because they're all over the place. I have dozens of playlists that I use for many different purposes, and I can't effectively utilize any of them. I can't even use the search button appropriately. Please advise. 


The only information I can find on this topic seems to be dragging around playlists in the list format on the left hand side? Which, again, I shouldn't have to do and isn't really what I'm looking for. I don't want to have to drag all my playlists around because someone felt like the "sort" option should be exclusive to songs within a playlist?

Can you give us a bit more information about what you mean regarding the search button?

When it comes to the rest, this is expected behavior.
