filtering is available in music library only, of course, you can create smart-playlist with filter by rating stars

Right mouse button.

And I do not / cannot use the library.

So, you can sort playlist by stars and remove unneeded tracks

Ah, sorry, I understood such sorting is only possible in the library.

So, I create a smart playlist and what boxes have to be checked and how can I add the tracks to it?

What data provider?

What you selected when creating the smart-playlsit? Music Library - Local Files?

I really do not know. My library does not work. May be the data source / tracks / music files?

And I didn't know one has to select anything. What do I have to select? Thought one just creates a smart playlist with that action and adds the tracks after or so.

Is there an explanation about how those smart playlists work?

"Stars" is a feature of music library, stars cannot be used without it.

Smart-playlists are same thing like it has been introduced at first time in iTunes:

So if the library is not enalbled one cannot sort by stars in the playlists?

You can sort, but all starts will be equals to 0

Sorry, I do not understand, how can one sort the stars if each of them is 0? Is there any way to show the 5 stars tracks only or on top or at the bottom in a playlist?

If you have non-zero rating stars, this means that your files are already in music library, and you have used it.

Is there any way to show the 5 stars tracks only or on top or at the bottom in a playlist?

to sort playlist, use the sorting templates, is already here the built-in template for sort by rating stars (%! %Mark).
filter playlist by rating stars is possible for smart-playlists only

This means, if one rates a track / clicks on a star this track is automatically added to the library?

I guess, this is the right place:

After having sorted by stars (or anything else) how could I get back to the order before that / at the beginning?
