    I want to copy some songs from iTunes onto the Desktop. Is there a way I can do this without dragging and dropping??

    Select all your songs, keyboard shortcut cmd-c, then go to your desktop and cmd-v. That should work. Cheers.

    EDIT: Sorry I mean select your songs through the directory, not through iTunes.

    Stupid question. Are you doing this from iTunes or from Finder? It works in Finder, I just tested it.

    I want a playlist which can't be found in the Finder.

    I just tested this and it worked fine on my iTunes:

    Create a folder on the desktop (if you don't already have one), open up your playlist and select all (command A). Then just click and drag it over the folder, and it will copy the songs there.

    Edit: Sorry, I didn't notice that you didn't want to drag and drop. Any reason why?

    Sometimes, the drag and drop function on iTunes doesn't work. To get this back, I have to restart the computer.
