iTunes 11 - How to get arrows back?



I always used these kind of tutorials to link the store-arrows to my own library. So [Option]-[Click arrow] would quickly select the artist or album. iTunes 11 will instead jump to "albums"- or "artists"-view and not stay within the "songs"-tab.

How to fix this?

Maybe, but neither can I believe they just deleted this feature nor it's impossible to redirect this "new" arrow to your library again:


When clicking it and choosing the album or artist, it will switch to another tab (albums/artists) and this just sucks.

Nope, with the 'new improved' iTunes I haven't bothered to invest any time in doing anything clever with it. Good luck!

Sadly I'm not sure which alternative is available. I'm mostly using my Windows 8 PC anyway, but nothing compares to iTunes.

Among all the crap that iT11 has pulled on the unsuspecting user, yours must be the least worrisome bit of the "complete re-dsign" a.k.a. "dumbgrade".

In any case, just revert back to iT10.7 like any sane person already did a long time ago. Not difficult at all if you're on Windows, just google around for an easy tutorial.

True, a lot of crap was introduced in iTunes 11. For me, though, changing the arrows was the worst. I used the old arrows all the time, in the same way that Liberty describes. I want to either:

- get them back just as they were, or...

- make it so the new arrows keep you in the "Songs" tab, rather than jumping over to "Artists" or "Albums". Or if all else fails...

- completely remove the new arrows.

If anyone figures out how to accomplish any of these things, I'd love to hear it.

Thank you all!

Solution is to downgrade to 10.7

Perhaps you've got no answers because your question is not clear. Anyway, you may see if the following link is useful:

I also want this, but I don't think it's currently possible.
