Combining Spotify playlists is as easy as copying and pasting.

You can easily combine playlists using the desktop Spotify app, by copying your the songs you want and pasting them into a new playlist.

This is an easy way to combine, as opposed to manually adding each individual song – the way you’ll have to do it if you only have access to the mobile app.

To combine playlists, simply use your computer’s keyboard shortcuts to select all, copy, and paste. On a PC you’ll use the Ctrl key, and on a Mac you’ll use the Command key.

Here’s how to do it.
