you have set up iTunes, take a minute to get familiar with all of the
different parts. On the
upper left you will find the Library. This contains your music library,
your movies library, TV shows, podcasts and radio. If you are connected
to the Internet and you click on radio you will discover several streaming
radio stations in all genres. You can listen to any of these radio stations
for free. To activate a station just click on one and hit play, or the
space bar. Next you will find the iTunes store. Below that you will find “Shared” and
that refers to home sharing or other shared libraries on your network.
Home sharing allows you to share the purchases you make in the iTunes
store with more than one users on your computer or household. Below that
you will find the iTunes Genius which when activated will make playlists
and suggest new music based on your existing music. Finally on the bottom
you will find Playlists, this includes the automated playlists that come
with iTunes as well as any that you add. On the very bottom you will
find a plus sign, click that to create another playlist. On the top right
you will find a search bar, here you can type in a search to find anything
in your library. To the left of the search bar you will find a few buttons
that change the view of your library, list, icon or cover flow. On the
top left of the window you will find the volume control and the play/pause,
forward/back button. This a brief overview of the basic parts of iTunes.
Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself.
