    I am running iTunes 11.3.1.
    Suddenly I seem to have a lot of duplicate Playlists. Not all. e.g 90's Music, 90's Music1...Classical Music, Classical Music1...Top Rated, Top Rated1. You get the picture?

    Thing is only some, but not all of my added playlists are duplicated. I don't know what might have caused this. Any suggestions?

    Also, if I go through, deleting a copy of the duplicates, will it matter which one I delete?

    Mousing with the option key held own is a quick way to inadvertantly create duplicate playlists. It's also good for inadvertantly copying one playlist into another playlist.
    Before eliminating the 'duplicates' check to see that they really are exact copies. Sometimes playlists get inadvertantly renamed.

    Why Apple can't add a lock down button to prevent these sort of accidental edits mystifies me.
