Each playlist queue is associated with the corresponding music queue. The green checkmark indicates which playlist queue is active and which queue the playlist control buttons (Move Up, Remove, Move Down and Add --> and Remove & Clear) will affect. The inactive queue will be marked with a red X. Selecting a playlist that is in the queue or changing the playlist queue will change which playlist queue is active.

The player will play the next song from the selected music queue, the selected playlist queue has no effect on which song will play next.
