Text documents of playlists serve as a valuable tool if you want an easy way to remember the songs on your playlist or a way to show your friends the contents of a playlist when you are away from your computer. You must choose a playlist from the "Now Playing" pane or the "Media Library" to perform this procedure. Exporting a playlist works for most versions of Windows Media Player, although older versions may not be compatible.
