Quickly find a song in the iTunes library
Authored by: IanWalker on Aug 15, '05 12:16:57PM

iTunes does this not by song title, but by whichever column you have your library sorted by. I keep mine sorted by Artist (and iTunes groups albums by the same artist together), so if I want to go a particular artist, I begin typing their name, and it hops down the list to that artist.

It also ignores 'the' at the beginning of names of artists, so if I type 'natio' it will take me to 'The National'. However, if your library is sorted by song titile, you need to type in 'the' at the beginning - typing 'gambler' doesn't do anything worthwhile, but typing 'the gambler' takes me to that song.

This is in iTunes 4.9 anyhow.
