    Hi Guys.

    In my iTunes Library, i have my songs, and then i have songs of my mums and dads. I sync all their music cos they don't know how, id teach them but anyhow..

    Is there a way of making their music 'disappear' while i browse my library, and then 'appear' when i only need their songs?

    In other words, is there a way of maintaining 2 separate iTunes libraries on the same computer?

    Thanks :)

    Press and hold the "option" key when you open iTunes, until a small window opens up with three buttons on it. Click "Create Library..." to create a new iTunes library, or "Choose Library..." to switch between libraries.

    That trick works on all Apple-supplied apps that work on homogenous libraries (iPhoto et al), BTW.
