    On WMP (Windows Media Player) i saw my sister arrange her library by artist, album, etc etc. I asked her how she did it, and she said you just click where it says artist, album etc etc. I tried it later but it didnt work... and i have gone through most of the options but cant seem to do it.

    Can you please help? I cant be bothered to arrange everything in A-Z order myself.

    It's exactly what your sister said, click the column header (rectangle) at the top that says "artist" and it will order them in ascending or descending order. Click it a few times.

    Many of your files likely don't have that infromation tagged in there, so what may be coming up is a bunch of blank spaces, but when you scroll down, you'll see actual files where the artists names have been included.

    You may need to reorganise all the titles, I had to do it with over 14,000 files. Count yourself lucky.
