I inadvertantly asked this in the iTunes for Windows community, so I'm reposting here.


When I select Genre, how do I sort the Album titles, or song titles, or artists alphabetically?


When I select the Albums view, how do I sort them alphabetically? They are all mixed up--hard to find what I want.

    I'm brand new to Mac, but as a previous PC user, you clicked on the heading (title, artist, genre, etc) to alphabetize the column A-Z or Z-A.


    Hope this helps

    I posted this on a different discussion, and so here it is copied and pasted lol.


    Hope it helps ^.^

    mmickeyfromfl--iTunes 11 is really, frustratingly different and won't let you do that ^.^"


    Here is a step by step picture tutorial :

    Step 1-Up thar in the top right corner, type in what artist you want (1). Or you can click "Music" at the top black bar, and then when scroll down to whatever genre you want (2).

    Step 2-If you did the genre version, on the right sidebar area, there should be a "Top songs", click that, and there, you can sort however you want. It works like normal. Idk why.

    If you searched artist, however, you can't just click "songs" or "see all" at the songs slidey area (really, anything you see at the top right side bar, don't click it, it won't let you sort because it's a search result list. IDK why Apple did this, but it did )

    You have to click the artist's name, under the top part of the right sidebar, where it says "Artists and More" (SEE BELOW)

    Once you click that, the artist page pops up:

    There, click "see all" for songs:

    And then you can sort.


    I hope that helped!
