    In itunes 10.7 is it possible to reorder the columns shown in the itunes column browser?

    I can enable and disable the columns but I can't seem to change the order of the columns.

    I can do so via clicking on the column and holding down the mouse button and dragging the column to another position.
    I use iTunes 10.7 on Mac OS X 10.6.8.

    You are doing this with the column browser columns (brought up with cmd-B) and not the normal columns? Mine remain resolutely undraggable.

    I appreciate the reply, but the columns I'm trying to reorder are the ones above that. Those are what itunes calls the "column browser". They don't appear to be draggable.

    The strange thing is mine aren't in the normal order so I must have reordered in the past but can't recall how I did it.

    Ah, sorry, misunderstood you. What order are they in on your computer?
    Genre - Artists - Albums?

    If I have all 5 columns enabled, they are, from left to right: genres, composers, groupings, artists, albums. Perhaps my memory is mistaken but I thought I remembered composers being the rightmost column.

    I'd like to put them in this order: groupings, genres, artists, albums, composers. It would aid in the metadata cleanup I'm doing right now. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem possible.
