Hi there,
It's been quite some time since I have written.
I'll try to explain my problem in detail.
I used to be able to go into a section and create "lists" of certain artists or songs and then save just the names of them to a folder, but that option doesn't seem to be there anymore for me.
Any help you can give me would be great.
Thanks a lot!

Seeing how this is your first post, I would agree.

It sounds like you're looking to create Playlists. They'd be on the left sidebar  navigator under, errr, Playlists. If you right-click on the word Playlists, you can create new ones.
If you don't see it, click the panel arrangement icon (the square to the left of the search bar > arrange panels > left sidebar > navigator > panel settings and make sure playlists is checked.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Check out the MusicBee Wiki.

Thanks Phred, but that isn't what I meant.
There used to be a function which enabled one to add all songs and download them (just the song info, not the songs themselves), but I can't seem to find it anywhere.
But no, I'm not talking about playlists.
And to be honest, I have no idea which one of my drives contains all of my MusicBee data.
If I were to download MusicBee v 3.4 into a brand new location, would I lose all information I have now?

Do a Windows File Explorer search for "MusicBeeLibrary.mbl".  That will be found on the drive that contains the data.  What folder structure it appears in depends on if you have the Store, Installer, or Portable verson of MB installed.

Thank you so much for that,  sveakul!
Now I shall download the "Additional Tagging & Reporting Tools " to that folder and see if it works!
Thanks again!

Well guys, I already have the ASR files in my folder, BUT.... they are not showing up in my player AT ALL!
And this is exactly what I need.
I just remembered it from the past.
I don't have any idea why they aren't working for me.

If by "ASR files" you mean the Additional Tagging & Reporting Tools plugin files, those need to be inside the "Plugins" subdirectory, not the MusicBee main directory.  Extract the contents there.  Then, make sure you enable it in Preferences/Plugins.
