So hear is my deal, a ton of my albums are partially tagged, meaning Artists and album name only. but the FILE names are like d1tr1 / name of song so It should play in the correct order( It does with any music app I have on My phone for instance . So is there anyway to get MusicBee to sort the songs by file name so the will play in the correct order?. or am I going to have to go thru hundreds of albums and number all the tracts one by one? Thanks!

MB is a music manager and as such some minimal tagging should be done. Minimal meaning <artist> <album> <title> <track #>.

If you don't want to tag your files, try opening the computer node from the left sidebar and find the directory where your album is. Right-click > play now.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

You can use 'Filename' for sorting. Just create a custom sorting order using that tag.

You could use mp3Tag to automatically number all the tracks for you.
How easy that is will depend on how your files are arranged.
I think it would be pretty easy if each album is in a separate folder.
Bee excellent to each other...
