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

    I looked, couldn't find a way.

    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

    Yeah, I cannot find a way either, this must be a "feature" of the moronic genius in itunes.

    Yup, I want to remove these suckers too :mad:

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

    Yes, that hack still works

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

    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.

    That's what it's called.

    View > As List
  14. macrumors 68000



    but the browser, under View > Show/Hide Browser

    is what we are trying to remove the genre from.

    anyone know how to get rid of the genre list in the "browser" in iTunes 8, cuz before i updated i had removed it somehow now i cant find an option to do it anymore. is this Apple forcing us to use genres, cuz i dont, and its annoying having it there
  16. macrumors 68000


    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

    We're talking about iTunes 8. That screen is from iTunes 7.7

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

    thank you.
  23. macrumors 65816


    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.
  24. macrumors regular


    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.

    Is there a way to get rid of genre/composer whilst in grid view?
