I recently got a new desktop with Windows8 and my entire itunes library disappeared in the transition.  All the articles and hints I find about recreating an itunes library don't deal with Windows 8 (which of course has no START button).  Any suggestions

Other OS, desktop PC

    Should you be in the unfortunate position where you are no longer able to access your original library, or a backup of it, then see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device for advice on how to set up your devices with a new library with the maximum preservation of data.


    If you don't have any Apple devices then see HT2519 - Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store. Sign in to the iTunes Store with your Apple ID, click the Purchased link on the store home page, then Music > Not on this computer. Download links for your previous purchases will be there...
