    I want to have the playlist up, and play the next (or other) track ONLY when
    I select it, not automatically start the next track when one finishes.I can't
    seem to find anything in the Help file to let me do this simple thing.

  2. I don't know of any way to change that behavior. However, you might try the
    following workaround:

    1. If you're playing anything, press Stop.
    2. Click the Library tab.
    3. In the Navigation pane (the pane on the left), double-click "Playlists."
    4. In the Contents pane (the pane in the middle), double-click the existing
    playlist you want to use.
    5. If necessary, in the Playlist pane (the pane on the right), click the red
    "X" to clear the list.
    6. Drag one of the items from your existing playlist to the Playlist pane.
    The song should start playing automatically and then stop.
    7. Drag the next song from your existing playlist to the Playlist pane, and
    then double-click that song in the Playlist pane to start playback.
    The song should play and then stop.
    8. Repeat step 7 for each additional song you want to play.
