Make iTunes create a Library entry containing everything

You can also create a simple one-condition smart playlist:

Kind is not [blank]

Where "[blank]" is just the empty field. Instead of "Kind," I suppose you could use any info that always some data, but Kind may be the only one.

Make iTunes create a Library entry containing everything

True, a Smart Playlist works; until I discovered this, I used that technique to create an "Everything" SP. However, the advantages of this is that the actual name of the Library will be used, and, because its not an SP, it doesn't bog down iTunes trying to update, since the "library playlist" is always there, just not visible by default. It also is sensibly located at the top of the LIBRARY list, which I like.

Those are both valid points. I only use the one library on my main machine, so didn't consider them.

Just a little FYI: After testing your technique, deleting the keys didn't remove the Library list here as suggested in the hint. Only entering the opposite values for the keys did it.
