Windows 7: Playlist folder location

Playlist folder location

Where do Playlists get stored when they are created with Media Center? I've created one and for the life of me can't find where it stuck it. I have existing ones in my music library but it didn't stick it there.


Thanks,

Kevin

WMC still uses the 'filename.wpl' method and you can search for these from the start menu. Yes, they can be edited.

It looks like this in notepad:
