I have several thousand soings in Itunes, many are grouped by genre or artist in playlists.
Upon importing a library forma  external hard drive I ended up with hundreds of duplicate playlists.

How can I promptly remove all of the duplicates in my playlist.

    You might try running a Duplicate Finder Tool.  Here are a couple free ones to choose from. I prefer the first one, Easy Duplicate Finder.  It should do what you need and it's easy to use.
