    Hold down the "CMD" key while making the selections.

    Finder works the same way, as do other lists.

    Or Ctrl if you're using Windows.

    Edit: D3lta beat me.

    You can click the first one you want, and then hold shift and click the last item, and it will select all the songs in between.

    You can't just hold the shift key and press the up or down arrows, like you can in Windows?

    If not, I'll never switch to a Mac. I fail to see how having to use two devices (mouse and keyboard) is "easier" than doing it with just one device (on Windows, you can select multiple items by using just the keyboard only).

    Yes. Why would you think I wasn't?

    Because it's hilarious to state that you would never switch to a new OS simply because a single key combination that you use doesn't work the same way.

    Luckily for you, however, it does.

    Heh. I love the ipod/iphone, but otherwise I'm an all-Windows person. Never found an Apple/Mac computer I found easier to use than Windows, though I could be converted -- if I ever found that the Mac had somehow become easier to use *for me* than Windows.

    especially if it's online inside iTunes which is one piece of software... not OS X itself.

    Great, that's all I was asking. It just seemed strange that the method that was first mentioned was, to my way of thinking, the more convoluted method (needing keyboard + mouse, as opposed to just keyboard only).
