can someone help me out here? if I click play album, only songs in that album play. what if I want to shuffle my entire library after only playing one song from an album? there is a workaround. I can go back to coverflow mode or list mode and press play and then go to grid mode. but this is a nuisance.

The Shuffle button on the bottom left of the window...

Ah... I see what you mean...

shuffle is activated.

try playing an album and keep skipping tracks. you're limited only to that album. what I want is to shuffle the whole entire library in grid mode.

Looks like you're limited to that album.

Yeah, I just tried.

How very annoying.

I've just clicked through the 3 different views and now it'll shuffle in Grid.

yeah, if you start playing your music in list/coverflow mode and return to grid, it will shuffle.

but what if you want to shuffle in grid mode? I don't want to have to go to coverflow or list mode just to shuffle. I this is a limitation of grid mode, because it only allows you to "play album."

I prefer grid mode to the other two modes so I want to stick to only the grid.
