Directly select any tab in iTunes' Preferences Apps
You can move around iTunes Preferences window by using Command-1 (General), Command-2 (iPod), Command-3 (Podcasts), etc., up through Command-8 (Parental). Tested and working in iTunes 6.0.1.

[robg adds: A nifty timesaver, and undocumented, as far as I can tell. The Help -> Keyboard Shortcuts menu item only shows that Command-[ and Command-] can be used to move to the next and previous tabs in prefs; it says nothing about using Command-num to jump directly to a given tab. You can also do the same thing in iTunes' Get Info window.]

Ain't this a Cocoa thing for Tabs in general?

iTunes is a Carbon application and the Command-Number behavior isn't a standard Cocoa behavior, though I think both it and Command-[ and Command-] would be useful defaults for tabbed preference windows.

Dang! All this time that has really frustrated me - and the solution has been there all along!

Well, better late than never.  :-)  Thank you so much for this tip!

The ⌘[ & ] shortcuts did not always work for me reliably until about iTunes 5; now they do.
