Unintstall iTunes, etc.: Removing and reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows Vista or Windows. Then reinstall iTunes 7.

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.

The problem is that when I updated to the new version, not knowing how much I would dislike it, it also deleted a bunch of albums I had imported from cds. What is up with that, and how can I retrieve them without having to start all over copying them.

The tracks my be in your recycle bin, in which case restore them and the links in the restore iTunes library should work again. Otherwise you will need to tidy up and re-rip.

Hey man, this is my first post and although I already had an apple account, I signed up for forums just to thank you as my first post. Your solution was really simple and solved the problem. Thanks for the really good, descriptive and easy to read screenshot too for newbies (I'm not really a newbie though lol). But thank you for the good instructions! Not sure how to boost your level but I liked your posts, hope that helps!

No, you don't have to downgrade to 10.7. You can use ctrl-b to turn on the menu bar and ctrl-s to turn on the sidebar. This restores much of the look of the previous version. You might find you can get used to the other changes. If you do want to downgrade however you need to restore an older version of your library or build a new one from scratch. iTunes 10.7 will not open a library that has been modified by iTunes 11.x

Wouldn't it be easier to have a menu, or buttons rather than hidden features...
I'm only using itunes because my ipod isn't smart enough to show up as a removable drive on the PC. I have never used itunes to play or store music. Just use it to drag and drop existing music in from the hard drive. This is all to much for a simple sync every now and then. The ipod works great - alone, I find it easier to update pod casts directly than to deal with itunes. Email, weather, quick internet searches, it's ok. It's itunes that I could do with out, any version. It bugs me that with out itunes, this thing is a paper weight.
Thank you for your help though. When apple forces the new version, I will remember your good ideas.

Wow, when I read this post (because I too am hating 11) I checked my Trash bin and sure enough I found all or most of my mp3's that I either ripped from CDs or converted from mp4's that I bought at the iTunes store.
Holy-Moley!! What is Apple thinking?
