    Is there a iTunes hotkey to take you to the top (1st song) of a playlist?

    Apple site doesn't show one and scrolling to the top every time is a PitA.

    With a song highlighted in the playlist or library, push the key A. Push b and it will take you to the first song in the first B artist and so on and on.

    Thanks, but not looking for alphabetical song finding. I want to navigate to the top of the playlist, as in the first song in the current playlist.

    Are you saying pushing A doesn't work or would you prefer a dedicated short cut? It works for me.

    When I push A it takes me to the first song that starts with the letter A, not to the top (first song) of my playlist.

    For me, ⌥Left takes me to the top of the playlist and plays the first song. Is that what you're after?

    I found it and it's almost a duh! action. Just hit the Home key and it goes to the top.:eek: Surprised no one knew this since it seems so obvious now.:D

    ----------

    Press/hold option key and pressing left arrow (cursor) key only moves up one song for me and only in the current playing song's Playlist.

    Sorry, I meant option-Up.

    I don't have a home key on any of my Macs, so couldn't try it out.

    actually it's 'fn+left' to go to the top of the list, and 'fn+up' to go up by about 10 songs...

    This only moves up 1 song at a time.

    This works too. Of course it is easer to just hit the Home key but fn/left arrow also works.
