Command-J brings up view options, where you can turn on "snap to grid" or "arrange by:"

As for the compilation issue, go to the albums in itunes, get info on the songs, and uncheck the "is part of a compilation" checkbox

eck, i selected snap to grid but its not really doing anything!
Make sure you have the folder in question open when you open the view options. There's a different view options window for each folder. Sort of. It's a weird model.

yah i did it in the folder, and put it to apply to all folders but then it just doesnt really work O_O

i was hoping somethign that would automatically sort and grid them, alphabetically.
