    When I first installed iTunes, I declined the option for iTunes to automatically change the mp3's file names to an organized format. For example, [windows], my 'My Music' folder is very disorganized with files that have the artist first, or just the song name, and even 01 'song name'.

    Is there a way I can turn that setting back on so iTunes organizes everything for me? Or was I misinterpreting what it meant? Thanks in advance.

    File->Library->Organize Library/Consolidate Library

    The setting you chose only applies to new items added to the library, the above commands will copy everything that you have in the library to the correct location on the computer.
