How do I get rid of those Store links?



Where is the option to turn those link arrows off in iTunes 8?

First thing I noticed when I went back to list view (which isn't even list view anymore, not sure what the obsession with album artwork is).
They are so ugly and I don't purchase iTunes music, so I don't want to have links everywhere to the store.

*edit* Just saw that you can remove the artwork in list view in view menu

I have genius turned off and they still show up...
There was an option to disable them in 7.7.

So this works with Mac OS, but what about Windows?

Where do you see these? I don't see anything that looks like that on my iTunes.

List view looks exactly the same as it did in iTunes 7.7.1. I don't know what you're seeing.

If you tick 'Disable: iTunes Store' in the parental preferences then the arrows go away.

However you can't browse the iTunes store then obviously. Since I rarely do I can live with turning it on manually when required.

people seem to call the browser mode "list view"

it's causing a decent amount of confusion in these threads.

open terminal, and paste - defaults write com.apple.itunes show-genre-when-browsing -bool FALSE

then restart itunes.

to remove the links to the music store put - defaults write com.apple.iTunes show-store-arrow-links -bool FALSE

No, it's not. Browser has got nothing to do with it. Look at the screenshot in the OP.

Yeah, thanks a ton. Can the same be applied to removing the Genius sidebar eyesore?

EDIT: for cripe's-sake, its that damn little button next to the Genius button. Gaack, iTunes is still my favorite media player, but it is becoming too much like winamp circa 2002 for me. a bit bloated and changing too often. For example, I just discovered some indecipherable "Cache" folder inside the Album Artwork folder. Previous to that I had been wondering where my 300 mg of disk space had disappeared to.

There's still a list view, that's the only view I use. Try clicking the triangle next to the top of the artwork column.

EDIT: My bad, you figured it out already.
