Shuffle Entire Collection

Post by darrellpeart » Mon Sep 18, 2017 2:27 pm

This must be a very simple thing - but I am just not getting it.
I want to shuffle my entire collection - not just a playlist .
How do I hit shuffle and randomly access everything in my collection?
Thanks....

Just add all to the Now Playing and make sure Shuffle is enabled.

Thanks - but I am still somewhat lost. I do not know how to "add all" and to enable Shuffle.

Select Music (if no files are shown select Music > Location) and then select all files and right click Play Now. Then make sure Play > Shuffle is enabled.

You can also use Auto-DJ (Tools > Options > Auto-DJ/Now Playing) to automatically play from the Entire Library.

You can also just d&d the collection node to Now Playing.
