    Suddenly I can't find the "Show Genre when Browsing" option in preferences. I need to get rid of the genre. Weird.

    Also, Grid view is really neat, but it seems like it's listing Artists and Album Artists as well. But with the way I tag, it doesn't work - I just need Artists.

    Eh, kind of annoying so far.

    Cant say it bothers me. But a friend has just been grumbling to me about the very same thing.

    Heh, I looked at the grid view for 5 seconds and then just switched back to coverflow. The genius bar is great though :).

    To get rid of Genre in Browse mode:

    Quit iTunes

    Launch terminal and enter:
    defaults write com.apple.itunes show-genre-when-browsing -bool FALSE

    Relaunch iTunes. Genre gone :)

    Thank you so much!!! The genre list was highly annoying to me.

    The albums are sorted by artists' name

    In the grid view, I can't get the albums sorted by the Album's Title. Is there a way to do that? While it's nice to have album grouped by artist, I got confused since I was expecting a sorting by title when I choose [Albums].

    :confused:

    Right click on the bar at the top (next to where it says Artists, Albums, etc) and select Sort Albums by.

    unbelievable! why did they get rid of the option to hide genre? the genre column is so useless and adds even more clutter to the already bloated UI
