    with itunes 8 the preference panel has been revamped...
    when i open it i can't find a click box anywhere, where i have the choice to see or not see the link arrows to the music store.
    i mean the little arrows that appear next to a song when you select it.
    i find those arrows extremely annoying and haven't figured out how to remove them.
    thanks if anyone can tell me where i can do that!

    go to terminal, type:
    defaults write com.apple.iTunes show-store-arrow-links -bool FALSE

    THANK YOU.

    I was about to uninstall 8 and go back to 7 just because of this...

    THANK YOU!
    you are a genius!

    what is apple thinking???
    why do something like that so only people that really understand how to use the terminal can fix that?

    i don't understand the logic behind that move...
    probably because people will click the arrows and apple makes more $$$ with the itunes store... ; (
    i think they should leave people with that choice. it feels like they're shoving the itunes store down my throat. i buy my cds because i actually like having something physical.
    sorry that i'm ranting...

    thanks again! : )

    Yes, the only way to make them disappear is to use Terminal.

    Pretty crappy idea to have them always on in iTunes 8 imo. I too thought about switching back to 7.x so I could remove them. Thank goodness for Terminal experts :D

    Thank goodness! Those arrows irk me. I would much rather have to not go into terminal to turn them off but this will suffice.

    apple would much rather you accidentally click on those arrows a few times a month. They figure you'll just live with it and maybe even accidentally buy some stuff, too.

    super-lame.
