Create a playlist
Playlists can include any songs, artists, albums and genres from your Zune music collection. You can listen to your playlists on your computer or you can sync them to a Zune player or Windows Phone and play them on that device.
Songs are played in the order they were added. You can edit the playlist to change the order or you can shuffle your playlists to listen to songs in a random order.

Or, you can right-click an item, like an album or a song, click Add to playlist, select the playlist, and then click OK.Create an autoplaylist
