iTunes - quick navigation window?

Postby eVoL » Thu Aug 09, 2012 11:08 am

So there used to always be a quick nav window above my main library that had 3 windows in it, Artist. Album and Genre I think. That is now gone and I cant find a way to turn it back on. Loads of buttons for useless crap like coverflow, genius and what have you but nothing for probably the single most useful window in itunes :(

Did it look like this?

Between the track progress bar and search bar there are four tiles next to one another. Click the one on the left that you can see highlighted in the image.

See my edit.

Personally, I prefer the furthest option to the right where it gives you a huge cover flow of albums that takes up half the screen. Just looks prettier even if it's slightly harder to navigate through.

Thats the one I have selected (leftmost) but the list goes to the top, no category box. :/


....and I cant stand coverflow. I want to listen to music quickly, not have thousands of mostly crappy artwork thrown at me before I find what I want.

Where the categories at the top of your normal list are (Name, Time, Artist, Album, etc.), hold down right click over the bar and drag it down. You may have accidentally dragged the bar to the top of the screen and completely covered the category boxes.

View -> Column Browser (Show Column Browser) or Shift+B

Then View -> Column Browser - Select the columns you want and select "On Top"
IMO :P :wink: :P :wink: :P :wink:
