    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

    You're a legend! Thanks for this. I tried to uninstall and install an earlier one but didn't work. I can work my way around this new one with these tips. You're a life-saver!

    To roll back to iTunes 10.7 first download a copy of the installer from here, uninstall iTunes. Probably best to also remove other suppporting software, e.g. Apple Application Support, Apple Mobile Device Support & Bonjour. Reboot. Restore the pre-upgrade version of your library database as per the diagram below, then install iTunes 10.7.




    See iTunes Folder Watch for a tool to scan the media folder and catch up with any changes made since the backup file was created.

    This is for 32-bit versions of windows. I need an installer for 64-bit. Can you help?

  • Muggins2008 Level 1 Level 1

    Googled it. Found it. Thanks.

    Thank you so much for your knowledge of what to do with this update. Thanks to you I am now up and running with Itunes 10.7 with all of my music +.

  • Canes042170 Level 1 Level 1

    Thank you so much for your help on this.  11 is worthless.

  • marrrrrrianne Level 1 Level 1

    Thank you. SO MUCH.

  • smsurine Level 1 Level 1

    I couldn't agree more. 11 is terrible. It eliminates some of the organization tools I've utilized (ex. the ability to group videos I've created into albums, and also see video thumnails while in a list format. I also used to love the album cover-flow, which appears to have been eliminated as well). I hate that all the music I've ever downloaded appears in my list as well. I deleted a lot of that music for a reason! I also have multiple computers and devices and don't necessarily want all of my music on everything. Thanks, Apple, for dictating how I have to organize my music! UGH! The new format looks terrible as well. I'm running it on a Mac with Mountain Lion. I wish I could go back to 10. This change makes me want to switch back to PC.

    confused a little on this..... so basically RENAME your files something else and move the library?  then uninstall - reinstall the old one.  then go back to the Renamed library and put it back where it belongs???? 


    thanks for your help

  • mtedeschi Level 1 Level 1

    Thanks so much for this!    iTunes 11 blows.  Got my 10.7 back and running!

    Thanks, this was really p---ing me off

  • Sleepyeyedboy Level 1 Level 1

    Thank you.  I got really distressed when I couldn't make iTunes 11 do ANYTHING I wanted including things like "hey, where do I click to see what's on my iPhone? I had an iPhone showing up here a minute ago.  How do I get back? ***?!" 


    Fool me once apple, shame on me, fool me twice, I'll still drink your koolaid, but a third time?  iTunes11 was the. last. straw.  How on earth do you miss things as blatantly pathetically just plain *wrong* as Maps, or iTunes 11 (for me, personally, iTunes 11 was a bigger failure), especially when you claim you're trying to get back to the "it just works" message.
