Organizing iTunes songs from Windows computer

philsimmons used Ask the Experts™
I run Windows 10 on my computer, but use iTunes to sync my songs and Outlook with my iPhone.  What I can't figure out is how to separate my different groupings of songs (e.g. My Favorites, My Wife's Favorites, Dance Tunes, etc.)?  I do have separate playlists, but when I want to import a bunch of - for example - "Hard Rock" songs, they're just added to my master list and the only way I can get them transferred to my "Hard Rock" playlist is by going song by song through the list and trying to remember which ones belong in the appropriate playlist.  With several hundred songs in my master list, this becomes unmanageable.  Is there a way to keep the imported songs segregated by category or folder or ?????   I'm more than willing to buy a third-party software program if that's what it takes.
