    Hey all,

    I have a question about iTunes. Let's say I search for a word, say, "door" in my music collection.

    I get results from a number of different albums, because door is quite a common word. I see one result, and I realize that I don't want to listen to that song, but another song on the album. Is there a way, either using preferences or the context menu or clicking while pressing a key, to go straight from the search results to viewing all the songs on an album of a given result?

    I often find myself wanting to do this and I haven't been able to find a way thus far. Grooveshark has this feature--you simply click on the album name itself and it displays the songs. I would appreciate any advice anyone can give. Thanks.

    I don't know of a way to select the entire album from the song in the search results. One method is to start playing the song, clear your search field, then sort by album and click the icon to the right of the song.

    That will take you to where that song appears in the album. The only other method I know of is to display the browser bar (Command-B) and select the album from the list.

    Thanks for your reply. I didn't know about either of these features of iTunes.

    It is somewhat frustrating that they don't have that option available. I can understand them not wanting to make that many elements of the results clickable but a command-click would be a good solution I think.

    Anyway, thanks again.

    This is something I've been wanting for years. It has been driving me nuts for a long, long time.
