What's the Secret for Deleting Playlists?

How does one delete playlists from the Roon system?

Click the “3 dots” menu on the Playlist you want to delete, then click Edit, followed by the Delete Playlist button…

Alternatively, right-click on the Playlist concerned to select it, then click the Delete button at the top of the screen…

I am using a tablet without a mouse.
How does one “right click” with no mouse?

Also exactly where or which symbol is the
delete button you refer to?

Long press on a tablet is the same as right click with a mouse…

Very good. However the larger issue is that I do not seem to locate
anything stating edit or delete.

Are you able to address that question?

and none show jack as regards the word “edit”.

As I wrote earlier:

I don’t possess a Samsung Galaxy Tablet to check - I’m just a Roon user, like you. I’ll wait for @support to comment on what is possible on that device…

I do see this in the KB:

Android devices that are at least 8 inches run the full Roon interface. Tablets smaller than 8 inches run an interface designed for smaller screens and phones.

Oddly enough today the Edit option magically now appears on my Samsung tablet.

I did just download an update from them. So now I can edit and delete. Life

is beautiful!!
