When I use iTunes on my pc (IBM Windows XP Pro), the songs do not play continuously like they do on my family's wintel PC. I always have to manually play the next song. I am sure that it some simple setting. I would appreciate any help. Thanks!
You need to checkmark them. iTunes will only continue on to the next checked track, so if none are checked, it will only play individual tracks. To check them all at once, hold down the Control key and check one of the tracks.
