How to play all media in the library in Foobar2000?

I configured my Foobar2000 to monitor some folders for media. How to play those folders? I'm not finding the button....

"To get a playlist populated by the media library:

By the Album List panel: Library > Album List (If the album list panel is in your layout it should flash some times, if not a new window appears.)

You could right click the branch and choose the appropriate action (e.g. Add to current playlist / Send to new playlist). The highest branch is All Music... If the ""library viewer selection playlist"" is enabled (look at Molly Answer) the playlist will be populated when you select a branch.

You could also change double & middle click actions, and tweak the different views with the title formatting syntax in File > Preferences > Media Library > Album List

By the Search panel: Library > Search (If the search panel is in your layout it should flash some times, if not a new window appears)

Here you could use the query syntax and Enter to send your search in the actual playlist and play it. Use Right Click in the list for other options... %path% PRESENT finds all your library

Additionaly: with these two panels you could create AutoPlaylist (auto populated): use the three dots in Search and right click in Album List.
