    I am new to the Mac OS.

    I have a quick question about Itunes

    I have used it for years on my PC.

    I want to check/uncheck songs to add to my Ipod so on my PC I highlight the songs I want to check/uncheck then I right click and a box pops up and I click on the check selections.

    i cant for the life of me figure out how to do this with my new Mac

    I figured out how to uncheck all my library. But I want to only select a few albums.
    But

    It's exactly the same as on Windows, I believe.

    Have you enabled right clicking?

    Do you have a mouse?

    In which case go:
    System Preferences > Keyboard and Mice > enable 'Secondary Button' to the right mouse button. And you're off just like with windows :)

    Or you can just press CTRL and click.

    If you want to select songs that are not continuous then hold down the "command" key and click the songs

    ]EDIT: Ah... a laptop. Okay, head to trackpad like Silver-Fox says, and enable two-finger clicking.

    Just hold down the control key then click to emulate right-click. Also, I believe that option click will check/uncheck a selection, command click will check/uncheck all visible items from a search or everything in a playlist.
