Drag Albums out of iTunes Apps
It's probably a well documented feature of iTunes since 8.1 but in Cover Flow mode, you can drag the image of an album to, say, the Desktop (or whatever folder) and it will copy the tracks in that location. Neat!

[crarko adds: I tested this, and it works as described. You may want to first create a folder on your desktop to drag these into, since this process does not. ]

I find that will also work in the Grid view and in the List view (if the Artwork column has been included by using View->Show Artwork Column or, alternatively, by clicking on the small disclosure triangle at the top left of the list panel, if that column is not currently being shown).

However, this operation will fail silently if you drag many tracks and two of the tracks have the same name.

There seems to be a caveat to this. It will only bring the entire album if first the music library is sorted by albums. If the library is sorted by another column your results will be much different.

David, mine is sorted by "Date added" and it still works fine, FWIW.

Forgive my obtuseness, but you would want to do this why?
