How to Erase Multiple Songs Simultaneously from a Spotify Playlist
If you’ve been using Spotify, you know that to erase a song, all you need to do is long-press on it. The Remove option from this playlist option will be the second one from the top.

Once it’s pressed, start clicking on the songs you want to remove. The selected songs will be highlighted, and when you’re done, right-click on them and chose the remove from playlist option.
By using the Ctrl or Cmd button, you can do something else. You can use this same method to like multiple songs. By licking a song, that song is added to your liked songs list. Clicking on the heart of various songs can be time-consuming. When you’ve chosen all the songs you want to like, this time, instead of removing them, choose the Save to your Liked Songs.
