OK, I'm fairly new to Plex, and I have my Plex server running with no problems. I can access the web browser GUI, and while it is nice, I'd like to be able to create playlists on the fly, and it seems that I need some sort of "Windows Desktop Client" in order to do that. I saw the list of keyboard shortcuts in the wiki (http://wiki.plexapp....ex.php/Keyboard), but they don't seem to apply to the web version. I seem to be running in circles trying to find the "official" Windows client, so I'm asking here: where do I find this thing, or does it actually exist? I did find the super-beta VLC-based Windows client, but it's definitely beta and not very stable for use at the moment IMO. I'm just trying to see if I'm missing something here...thanks!

Look again.

There appears to be a design issue that makes people miss the links on this page:
http://www.plexapp.c...tplex/index.php

I missed it for several minutes... Three of my associates missed it until I pointed to it... and this is at least the 2nd post I saw here missing it...

Perhaps a layout change would help. It's only obvious once you see it... not while you look for it.

D'oh! Thanks!
