MediaMonkey is a free digital media player, comparable to Apple's iTunes and Microsoft's Windows Media Player. Like its competitors, MediaMonkey allows you to organise music into playlists and organise your song library using specific labels. You can sort according to artist name or album title, or you can get even more specific. MediaMonkey allows you to tag songs with "Classification" labels, which include year of publication, genre (style of music), and even mood.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open MediaMonkey and select your "Library" folder in the left column. If you know the locations of the songs or albums that you want to edit, you can click their individual playlists in the left column.

  2. 2

    Using your mouse, select the song or songs that you want to edit. To select more than one song in MediaMonkey, hold down the "Shift" key and click each title individually.

  3. 3

    Right-click any one of your selected songs and choose "Properties" from the drop down list.

  4. 4

    Click the "Classification" tab along the top of your "Edit Properties" window. By default, you will see 4 classifications: Tempo, Mood, Occasion, and Quality. Use the pop-up menu beside each classification field to choose specific classifications. For example, under "Tempo," you might select "Slow," "Fast," or "Very Fast."

  5. 5

    Click the "Custom" boxes to add custom classifications. For example, if you want to classify certain songs as "Nostalgic," "Inspirational," or "Workout Music," you can manually enter these terms into the "Custom" boxes and use them to organise your music for different occasions.

  6. 6

    Click "OK" at the bottom of your "Edit Properties" window to save your changes.
