    don't ask why i don't know this, but how do i select multiple items in iTunes at once? I'm converting them to mp3 and it is time-consuming to do it one at a time(and i have 50 or so to do) and i know there is a way, but i'm not a techie..

    Any help would be useful

    I am a micrsoft User..

    You should be able to select one item, hold down shift, and then select the last item in the group you want selected. Make sure you're doing this in the library itself rather than a playlist.

    If you want to select a few songs that are not in a group, hold the command key as you select the songs. This works for alternating songs, or selecting a few to put on the iPod

    Just to add to this, those key combinations work throughout both OS X and Windows - they are by no means an iTunes only feature. Shift-click selects a range of items and control/apple-click selects multiple items. This can be done in Windows Explorer/Finder, etc. :cool:
