Q: I recently did something inadvertently in iTunes and my Source list is gone and I don’t know how to bring it back. I called Apple and they sent me directions on how you remove it completely from my PC and reinstall it and did so to no avail! Can you help?

A: We’ve tried this and cannot find a way to remove the Source list from the iTunes window with the current version of iTunes. However, if you double-click a playlist, an iPod or the iTunes Music Store window, that source will open in its own window. It is possible that you did this, then closed the main iTunes window. If this is what happened, just select Window > iTunes (from the top of the screen) and you’ll see the main window again.
