I have Windows 7 and am just learning about organizing music files in Media Player. If I delete a playlist file I created, does it delete the songs from "Music"?

Playlist = list with links to files and their tags. So no, you wont delete files if you delete your playlist – sanny Sin Dec 6 '12 at 13:24

No the playlist is simply a text file that contains links to your media files and deleting that text file will not delete your music!
