I hate this new version of iTunes 11.1, how do I revert to previous version?  Thanks, R

    The only way you would be able to get a previous version of iTunes is if you had the package downloaded to your computer. You would have to completely delete the new version and then reinstall the old.

    you might want to click on View- show sidebar and View- show statusbar. probably this is what you are looking for. you might also want to go to >songs and on the center up horizontal tab ,click on artist. this should give you a feel of the older version.


    hope it helps

    Use Timemachine to restore your system to iTunes 10.7.  I had to do a system restore to get rid of that "OS X requires iTunes" nonsense.  You will have to ensure that you re-import (restore) your entire music library as well.  I found that merely changing the .itl library file was not enough.  I had to re-install my entiire library of nearly 1.5TB!!!  Took a loooong time, but all is back and I still have all my playlists and additional info on the music files.  However, iTunes 11 "killed" my iPod.  My iPod is now "unreadable" even in disk mode.

    Thank you so much, silversurfers.  I don't know if that's what TennisYalie wanted, but that's exactly why I was going to revert.

    I don't like it either. How do I choose the music I want to upload to my ipod? On the music tab, I have a sync music check box and when I click on it I get this message." Are you sure you want to remove existing music, movies, TV shows, books, and tones from this iPod and sync with this iTunes library?" No I don't want to remove existing music. I just want to delete some music and add something different.


    I prefer the old way where I just pick my music from the scroll boxes.
