Q: I have several songs that have a few minutes of silence at the end. Is there any way to edit the songs so they end where I want?

- Paul

A: Select one of the songs, then select File > Get Info. Click the Options tab. Near the bottom of this window, you’ll see Start Time and Stop Time fields. Change the Stop Time to where the song ends; when you play back the song, the silence will be gone.
