    Every time I try the commands all it does is open up and take me to my itunes program. What am I doing wrong here?

    Thanks.

    Does this remove the 4 Ping lines from the context menu I get when I right-click songs in my library? These lines push the options I do commonly use, "Get info" and "Show in Windows Explorer", that many lines down in the context menu.

    This is the horrid part. I've submitted feedback to Apple. Let's hope they get rid of it. I use lastfm to scrobble, my iPod to rate tracks, and I'm not about to start entering everything I "like" in Ping since I'm not a teen with copious spare time.
    It makes it more difficult to get to the itunes store page I want, as well.



    Please, everyone, send feedback to Apple and give them the URL of this thread!

    Here's what I sent them
    +Please get rid of the in drop-down in the track name column!+
    +Please get rid of Ping in the right-click > flyout menu!+


    +They make it much more difficult to and annoying use itunes.+
    +People are figuring out how to turn some of it off, they dislike it so much.+

    +The likeliness of me recommending iTune to a friend has dropped from a 10 to a 5.+

    +By the way, iTunes 10. doesn't show up in the list of itunes versions further down this page.+

    You're possibly having the issue I had...I mis-read the command line and had typed setPreflnt instead of setPrefInt (l instead of Capital I). Apparently one letter can make a whole load of difference. As can regular eye tests...
  • OS4sucksSaltyBalls Level 1 Level 1
    Important Note (maybe obvious but...) You MUST have iTunes completely shut down when you do this, as you are changing a file it is using.

    Also, I couldn't get it to work with the "C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe" /setPrefInt show-store-link-arrows 1

    what I did was navigate to the folder in a command prompt and just did "iTunes" /setPrefInt show-store-link-arrows 1

    It worked just fine.

    Good luck.

    Thanks to Katrina who pointed me to this thread. You are a lifesaver! I am so tired of PING being shoved down our throats.
  • Katrina S. Level 7 Level 7
    Thanks to you and also David!



    I had to go to C:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes in the command prompt window first,then copy/paste
    "iTunes" /setPrefInt show-store-link-arrows 1



    before it would put the store arrows back.


    I was actually kinda enjoying Ping, at least the comments from Yo-Yo Ma.
    I turned Ping off for 3 days and it lost everything, though....which it said it would keep everything for 7 days. When I turned it back on, it showed I was following 37 people but all the pages were blank. Not worth setting it up again!
    Yet another Ping fail.



    Now it's off for good and I have my arrows back, thanks to you both.

    I am currently still on iTunes "9.something"; and it is working just fine for me. I will be getting a 4G Touch as soon as it is released in my country. Will the 4G Touch work with iTunes 9? I have NO interest in Ping would prefer not upgrading to iTunes 10.

    Thanks

    64-bit (corrected)version worked perfectly. Do run commands while iTunes is NOT running and started up, NO more ping drop-downs. Ping was already set to OFF in iTunes Store. Thanks for the re-post!

    iTunes 10.0.1.22

    ...sorry, but all this "hacking" can't be true for a SW released in the 21st century.
    Does anyone now how to get back to iTunes 9.x?
    Is there any official download available?

    Thanks for your support.
