Forum Question: How Do I Get Back the ‘Recently Added’ Playlist On iTunes I Accidently Deleted?

in iTunes there are a few preset playlists, with a gear/cog icon, with titles like ‘Top 25 Most Played’, ‘Recently Played’, ’90s Music’, etc. By mistake I deleted the one that said ‘Recently Added’ which makes it really tough to find the tracks I just drag & dropped into iTunes.
I’ve tried, but I can’t see how to get it back. Any suggestions?

    All those are are some smart playlists. They are just put in there by default. You can create your own smart playlist to replace (or improve upon) those default ones.
    So in your case just create one called “Recently Added” and set it to include “Date Added” is “in the last” 30 days or so.
