Adding Your Music to the Library

The first time you run the application, you'll be prompted to select which folders to scan for music, and for what type of music files to scan for. Any music files found in these directories/subdirectories will be added to the Library. When music is added to the Library, existing Tags are never modified in any way.

See: Adding Files and Folders to the Library

Playing Tracks from the Library

Once your files have been added to the Library, navigate your way through your music collection by clicking different nodes in the Library portion of the tree in the MediaMonkey Explorer. The Track list will update to match the selected node.

To play a Track, simply double-click it in the Track list. That Track will begin playing, followed by Tracks that were listed subsequent to it (in the default player configuration). To play specific Tracks, select several and then click the Play Now button on the toolbar. For other functions, right-click to see the context menu.

See: Browse the Library, Playing Audio Tracks

Editing Tags

To edit the properties associated with a Track, right-click on the selected Track and choose Edit Properties . Make your changes, and click 'Ok' to update the Track's Tag. If you're missing information or Album Art, right click on the track and choose Auto-Tag from Web.

As with other commands, if you select multiple Tracks and click Edit Properties , the command will apply to all of the selected Tracks.

See: Editing Track Properties, Auto-Tag from Amazon

Customizing the Application

Once you've played a few Tracks, you'll probably want to spend a bit of time customizing the application to suit your tastes. Try:

  • Right-clicking on any of the column headings to add/remove columns that you'll be using regularly.
  • Drag and dropping the various column headings to change their position.
  • Clicking the Tools > Options menu to customize skins and other options.

See: Customizing MediaMonkey
