Question: total content of my library (tracks/albums)?

It used to be displayed on iTunes long ago. I'd like to know how many tracks and albums my library is made of.

Many Thanks.

Answer:
Answer:

Use View > Show Status Bar. Different views of the library will give you counts of artists, albums, songs, etc. Try also View > Column Browser > Show Column Browser.

Of course, it says you have a Mac above, but you posted in iTunes for Windows, and I got distracted. I was going to try to show how to use the menu bar to turn the status bar on and off in an animated GIF, but the capture software I was going to use won't get the menu bar on a Mac, so I thought I'd try it in Windows, where I ran into the issue I mentioned. Seeing as the thread is iTunes for Windows I seized on the possible explanation.


On a Mac CMD+/ should show or hide the status bar. In the Songs view CMD+B will show or hide the column browser. With both enabled this is the kind of thing you ought to be able to see:

Ah, it looks like the show/hide status bar option is missing from the view menu of iTunes 12.7.4.3 for Windows. It is there on a Mac, and should be available using the Ctrl+/ keyboard shortcut in Windows, but that isn't working. I guess you're stuck with the state of the status bar that you had last time you updated iTunes, and will be until the next one. 😕

Sorry about my belated answer to your kind reply: a friendly vendor at a Mac store put that finally clear to me. You were telling me all along to watch View and Status bar...of course! I now know my tracks number over 30,000...something I suspected. Thank You!!
