Today I am going to show you how to use the Clips feature in Quick Cliq to create a custom .m3u play list file across multiple directories. It is easier than you think with the append and file save capabilities of the extra clipboards.

An .m3u play list file is nothing more than a text file with file names on each line. Yep that’s it. We are going to use Clip # 1 for this, but you can use any clip number you want. Let’s make sure that no data is on the clip. Show the clips menu and check to see if there is an icon next to clip one. If there is, then there is data on that clipboard and we need to get it off so select Clear in the Clip 1 menu.

Now that we have a clear and ready to use Clip lets start filling it with the music we want. Highlight our first file and copy it to Clip 1 by pressing Control + 1. Now for every other music file we want in the play list we will highlight it and press Control + Win key + 1 to append that file name to the clip.

When you are done adding your complete Devo collection go ahead and view Clip 1 and you will see all the files on separate lines (you may have to turn off Word Wrap or resize the window to see them on individual lines). Now click the To File button and rename the file with the .m3u extension.
