    After installing iTunes 9, the (+) icon in the upper left corner no longer changes my iTunes window into the mini player as it did before. Is this an option or did they remove this feature? Thanks

    Like windows...

    The only way right now is using a shortcut: Command + Shift + M

    It looks like Apple decided to give us a Windows Feel Sadness.

    It is frustrating... Clicking on the green button was the easiest.

    Hold down Option and click the green button...

    I always used to press Ctrl+Cmd+Z and it was an easy one-handed shortcut. I then tried just clicking Zoom, and it makes it bigger?! I was feeling like a Windows user... :(
    I hope Apple change this..

    Yeah, that was the only time I ever used the plus button in OS X! It will take me a week to remember to use cmnd-shft-M or option-click, but at least I don't have to go searching through menus to get to mini mode.

    I think it's good they fixed this inconsistency so it behaves like the the rest of the programs in OS X.

    Hi Everyone..

    When I installed iTunes 9, I pressed the green zoom button, expecting to get the ultra-small iTunes player window. But this time it didn't come out that way, it just made the window much larger.
    So I tried some modifier keys, and found that Option-clicking the zoom button now creates the mini player window.
    Any Idea? Thanks in advance.
