I DJ at a lot of daycare centers where I use a very specific playlist. Is there a way to "lock" that list so that it can't be accidentally changed or deleted?

Thanks for trying. Possibly I missed it, but I didn't see it there. :)

Can't find a way to lock a playlist. What you can do: Create a folder "Great Playlists". Put the playlists that you want to be safe into that folder. For each of these playlists create a new smart playlist with a single search item "Playlist = ....".

Your real playlist is now stashed away in a slightly hidden place, but you can play it using the smart playlist.

Great idea! Thanks!
