How to open a playlist in a new window in iTunes 12.6 on macOS

With the release of iTunes 12.6, Apple has restored the ability to open a playlist in a new window on macOS --- here's how to do it.

How to do it is simple. Either control-click or right-click on the playlist you want to open and select Open in New Window. The playlist you've selected will pop up, ready for manipulation!




We opened 10 windows with playlists without difficulty, and was able to drag tracks at will between the windows. It's not clear why the ability was removed, or why it was reinstated —but we found the restoration welcome, especially on large screens.
