How do I get to iTunes Home Sharing setting? I am trying to share apps, but I can't get to "settings", which according to instructions, is supposed to be in the lower right hand corner of the window.

I can see shared users, I just can't get to "settings" so I can share apps.

Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

    then home sharing is not set up properly.

    the following is from the iTunes 9 times (notice the color ?) but still applies to iTunes 10: what you want to see in iTunes is this (view from my MBP's iTunes seeing the library on my Mini)

    iTunes new

    if you then click on the house icon, it will change to this iTunes new and the shared library will load. at that point, two buttons will appear in the lower right corner of the iTunes window, being settings and import

    GrowlHelperApp

    if the icon looks like this Apple - Support - Discussions - Home Sharing ..., home sharing has not been set up correctly.

    in order for home sharing to work

    (a) iTunes on all machines must be authorized for the same iTunes store account
    (b) all machines must be on the same network
    (c) all machines must have access to the internet.

    if none of the above makes a difference, try turning home sharing off on all computers, then turning it back on.

    these reads will be useful: one and two.
