Apple has recently posted a new Knowledge Base article for iTunes 4: Tips & Tricks. Here is a sampling of 3 of the 14 tips and tricks listed:

  • To quickly add a song from a CD to an existing playlist, insert the CD, then drag the song from the CD (in the Source list) to the playlist. The song is automatically imported into your library and added to the playlist. To add a song from a CD to a new playlist, drag the song from the CD to the white area below the items in the Source list. The song is imported into your library and added to a new playlist.
  • To open a playlist in a new window, double-click the playlist icon in the Source list.
  • To quickly create a playlist containing an album in your library, click Library and choose Edit > Show Browser (if you see only Hide Browser, then the Browser is already visible). Drag an album from the Album list in the top-right section of the library to the white area below the items in your Source list. A playlist named after the album is created.

Anyone know how to browse your library by Genre? When I click on the browse “eye”-con, only artists and album columns appear. I think I’ve seen someone browse their library with 3 columns, the third being genre. Just wondering how this is done.

Go to preferences, general preferences, and check the box labeled “Show genre when browsing.” Now it will work.
