While MusicBee is running, i would like to add songs to the playlist, using my file manager. Is there any command for this? Thanks!

Are you trying to add to a particular playlist, or to the Playing Tracks list? I think you can do the latter from File Explorer (provided you've configured it with Windows), but not the former. However, you can always use the Computer node in MusicBee to find tracks that aren't in your library.

Suppose, i have a dozen tracks in the playlist, say, playing song number three. So if i do nothing, it will continue playing, until track 12 is reached. What i try to do is, to select more songs to be appended to this list, like another 10 tracks after the last one.

Select the songs in your library (or in the computer node of MB, if they are no part of your library yet), right click them and choose 'Queue last'.

What Bizy said. Also, if you're having problems with the Playing Tracks list being cleared when you try to add to it, look at Now Playing preferences and make sure it's not set to one of the"clear tracks and..." Options. You probably want "queue next" by default.

Thanks to you both, i will check that out. Seems, i have to browse inside Musicbee instead of using the file manager. Will also check to change that option to "queue".

If you've updated your preferences, you should be able to add tracks from File Explorer. But MusicBee's library is ultimately much more powerful.
