    Simply minimize the window and then open it again. Works everytime. Dang Apple Programmers!

    If you have a scroll wheel, it's easy to get the vertical scroll bars back, just start scrolling. But unless you have a Magic Mouse or a trackpad, you're out of luck. The horizontal scroll bar is not accessable as you have to have a device that scrolls from side to side.


    Resizing the window bring will back the scroll bars, but only for a single second which is quite inconvenient. Don't Apple programmers have anything better to do? This "improvement" is a joke, like the rest of the iTunes 11 changes!

    I had no problems with iTunes 11 until just the past couple of days. I litterally just noticed my sidebar was missing! However the biggest problem is that now my songs that I thought I put into my library, will not appear and I can not find them!! This is very frustrating..

    Thank you Robert - this too was driving me mad! All sorted using the minimise/maximise advice

  • xybeptek Level 1 (10 points)

    I found a very quick fix in Win7-64.  Just grab the very top of the window from it's broken "maximized" position, pull it into the middle of the screen, then "throw it" to the right side of the screen, so Windows docks it to one half of the screen.  There's your scroll bar!!  Then you can click the maximize icon in the upper right and the scroll bar stays where it should be.

    Yes, there are ways to fix it, but why on earth should I have have to jump through all these stupid work-arounds and hoops to fix a problem that should have never been there to start with??  And why should I have to do it everytime I start up iTunes.  These sort of things should have never passed beta testing.  This is mickey mouse nonsense.  This software is meant to be from the worlds most valuable company and a premier software house and it is largely junk.


    It is blatently clear that Apple knowingly released buggy software merely to met their release deadline (and no doubt some middle / upper manager got their KPI payment that month).


    Version 11 is a dogs breaksfast and Apple should be ashamed of themselves.  There are good reasons their share price is tanking, and iTunes 11 is one of those reasons.

  • distant rhythm Level 1 (0 points)

    Maybe not directly, but yes iTunes 11 is one great example out of many why Apple is starting to be perceived as being out of touch with their user base. And that perception will definitely affect their share price.

    Thank you!!

    Ok team...thanks to those of you that have helped me with the pesky missing scroll bar and newly added movies automatically going to "Home Videos" instead of movies.  They are both pains but at least there was a way to get there.  I still have one more annoying problem that I can't find mentioned in these forums.  I have quite a few movies loaded up and I often want to quickly navigate to an area like movies starting with "F" or something.  In version 10 I could select any movie to make sure I was in the main window then simpy type "F".  This would scroll the movies to "F".  Now when I select a movie the bottom half of the main window show details about the movie I selected.  Then if I enter something like "F" it simply takes me to the last movie in my listing and opens the detailed view for that movie.  Am I doing something wrong?  How do I quickly navigate other than scrolling forever or using the scroll bar?  Thanks agin for all the help.

    For us simple users.


    In Mountain Lion:


    System Preferences / General / Show Scroll Bars   = Always

    bit pointless posting this in  the windows thread eh?

  • mireuko Level 1 (0 points)

    I think I may have a solution for some. I noticed that maximizing to full screen makes it so that the scroll bars are not visible.


    however, i fixed it by turning off, "minimize itunes to start menu". This can be done on windows by right clicking on the start menu, selecting, "Toolbars", and unchecking, "iTunes". I guess since I rarely use this feature it will be ok for me to turn it off, but for those who do.... you may need to revert to another solution


    Here are my environment setup just in case it differs from your setup

    Resolution: 2560x1440

    OS: Windows 8/64 bit

    iTunes version:


    i'm no expert but let me know if anyone needs any help with this.


    -----what you gain-----

    ability to properly full screen itunes 11 to fit your resolution without losing your scroll bar


    -----what you lose----

    lose itunes control on the task bar (if you even use this feature). a workaround would be to open itunes, or using media controllers on the keyboard to change tracks

    Doesn't help me . I have a lap top with 64bit and scroll bar will not show

  • Robert Belbeck Level 1 (25 points)

    Out if all the comments the one that works the best and is the easiest was the first one:

    "Right click on the itunes icon on the home screen and go to properties. It will be set for "normal window". Change it to "minimized". Open itunes with this icon. Then click on the minimized icon at the bottom of the screen to maximize/open the program, itunes appears with a usable scroll bar. Kind of a PITA, but it works."

    This still does not work for my computer, but thanks!
