Command-Click to Expand all iTunes Playlist Folders Apps
In the Finder, Option-Clicking the disclosure triangle for a folder while in list view will reveal or close all its contents. In iTunes, Command-Clicking on just one Playlist Folder will do the same, but for all Playlist Folders in the iTunes sidebar.

Elsewhere in iTunes, this can be helpful when preparing to sync only selected content to an iPod, iPhone or iPad because iTunes defaults to showing all Playlist Folders expanded.

When a device is connected, the Music section for selecting which playlists to sync -- this is in the main part of the iTunes window, not the sidebar -- displays all Playlist Folders with their contents revealed. Here, too, a Command-Click on one Playlist Folder will close all of them.

[crarko adds: I tested this, and it works as described. I don't use Playlist Folders myself so this behavior is new for me.]

Command-Click to Expand all iTunes Playlist Folders

Thanks! I would have never been able to find that on my own. Why? Because naturally I tried the Option- or Alt-key.

Why on earth is iTunes the main playing field for Appel UI designers to deviate from the rest of OS X? With great nostalgia I am looking back to times, when not only did the Apple HIG have a meaning but also enhanced consistency.
