iTunes 10 Essential Training takes an in-depth look into the popular music and media hub from Apple. Author Garrick Chow demonstrates how to perform the core functions in iTunes: playing, purchasing, sharing, and streaming content. The course also covers specialized features such as setting parental controls, syncing with iPods, subscribing to podcasts, listening to Internet radio, using the Genius feature, the Ping social network, and much more. Exercise files are included with the course.
In this movie, I want to quickly show you another feature you'll probably find more and more useful as your library begins to grow. I am going to start a song playing. (Music Playing) So sometimes you may be playing a song while browsing through the rest of your library, maybe looking up some info, maybe changing some info. I am not going to change anything here. I am just going to cancel out of that. But then you want to get back to the song you're playing but in a particularly large library, you might not be able to find it too quickly. Because what I'm looking for as I scroll through here is this little speaker icon that indicates to me which song is currently playing.
And in a large library, it might take me an unnecessarily long time to locate that song. So what we can do is use this little button in the right side of the center display called the Snapback button and clicking this button takes you right back to the song that's currently playing, let's go ahead and pause that. So that can be a really convenient button to have especially if you have a large library. The Snapback button can also be really useful if you're playing your songs in Shuffle mode, which we will discuss a little later. Sometimes a song might come up reminding you that you wanted to edit its information or just look up some of its info.
In that case, just click the Snapback button to go right to that song and the Snapback button works whether you're in the song list, album list, Grid view or Cover Flow view.
