Hey guys in have an iMac, bought it last year. I am trying to back up my iTunes library. When I go to finder i see:

Favorites
devices
shared (no clue what this pc is showing unless its my apple tv?)
tags

I see no username so I can find my library and back it up. You'd think iTunes would have its a tab to just hit back and tell it where to go lol

It sounds like you have the Favorites hidden. If you hover you mouse just to the right of the word Favorites you should see a place to click "show" to list the Favorites. Then you should see your user name there where you can click and get to the Music folder that would contain the iTunes library.

Do you see anything at all under Favorites in my screenshot? Or are there things there and just not your user name?

If you see other items listed there and just not the user name, you may have disabled that display in Finder preferences. Open Finder then command-comma to bring up this preference pane then make sure you checked by the house toward the bottom where I put the red arrow.
