It appears that you can not sort your Playlists alphabetically.  I think this would be very helpful, especially if you have a lot of vids and Playlists.  Wish YT would make this available.  Anyone else think this would be good?

I absolutely agree and I'm negatively surprised this feature is not already available.

I too thought this option is viewed as a "normal" request and I just needed to learn the right keystrokes to "Get 'er done".  Bummer - You Tube is such an asset to everyone! - Now, please get up to date too...!?? Are you aware of any soon to be updates that will be coming out soon?

I also would also like to view my playlists in alphabetical order too! 
 
But……………Noooooooooooooooo! We have to scroll through a jumbled mess
 
They are not even grouped together under there’re own folder i.e. ‘My Playlists’ , they are all just slapped in there below the default folders such as ‘Library’ & ‘History’ & ‘Watch Later’ !!!
Then hang on ooooo look the fourth one down is one of my created playlists…Um ok…..
But wait….! The next folder below that is the ‘Liked Videos’ folder ( U Tube default folder) then followed by the rest of my own playlists which I have personally created. And of course yes, you all knew what I was about to say next……There all there and completely unorganised, randomised and jumbled up with no earthly logical rhyme or reason!!!
 
I as maybe many others would really love an explanation why this is. Not going to hold my breath though TBH.
 
Lastly and sadly, I find that as a frequent user of most Google apps, my ability as a user it dictated by what you (Google) will let and only want us the user to do…!
 
‘Like it or lump it’ – It’s the Google way…

*Edit - On iOS devices there is the option to list playlists by A-Z or Recently Added.

Just not on desktop (Chrome Ironically).

I agree with you from 1 million to infinity %. That should be a feature just like sorting the material in each playlist. Hey Youtube! When will this take place?!

I've got 62 playlists. Nothing is more annoying when clicking "add to playlist" and a random jumble of playlists appear. When I want to search my playlists, there is also no clear order. I know the ones II've used recently will be at the top of the list but I need easy clear access to all of the playlists without this random scroll through 62 names. 

It seems like an easy enough option to include an alphabetical order of playlists option.

Yes, its unbelievable the playlist has effectively zero management, editing, hierarchy, ordering etc. This is pathetic. The Premium service at $11 per month not having this standard functionality is simply outrageous.

I have the option on my Samsung Android tablet to choose Playlist settings...A - Z or Newest first.  Very convenient, but even thought my computer and tablet are linked, only the tablet has the lists alphabetized.  The computer remains a jumbled, inconvenient mess.
