    In the old iTunes, there used to be an arrow button at the top right next to the artist name and song title that used to locate the current song being played. That button is no longer there in 11. How do I do it in 11?

    The button you are referring to still exists - I used it this evening. I'm not at my mac right now so I cannot take a picture, but I promise it's still there, although I don't think it was in the exact same place. Like a lot of new things in iTunes 11, it's possible that it's there in some views but not in others.

    Sweet! Even better, a keyboard shortcut.

    I found another way. if you right click or crtl click on the song name at the top, you get an option to click on current song.

    OK - I knew it was still there ...

    all you have to do is hover your cursor over the song title window/bar (where you used to see the button you are looking for before) and it appears. Move your cursor somewhere else and it disappears. Its sort of like how OSX and iOS deal with scrollbars now - its there where you need it.


    Its a right arrow button - click on it and it gives you a list of options, one of which is "go to 'song title'"

    Found it!

    Having to click on that right arrow and then select "go to current song" sucked and "Command-L" isn't working. I looked and it's now "Command-S"!

    tl;dr- Hit "Command-S" to go to current song in iTunes 11

    Weird. Command-S does not work for me. Command-L works perfectly.
