iTunes 12.0.1
Using the new iTunes

iTunes 12 includes design and performance improvements that make iTunes  easier to use. Here’s where to find some of your favorite features.
 Switching media types
iTunes 12 includes dedicated icons for music, movies, or TV shows, which  make it easier to get to wherever you want to go in your library with a  click. You can use the same controls to switch media types whether  you’re browsing the iTunes Store or browsing your library.
You can even choose the media types you always want to see. To access  more media types, click the More button (three dots) in the upper-left  corner and click Edit. Select your favorite media types in the pop-up  menu, then click Done.
Keyboard shortcuts

You can quickly change your media type in iTunes 12 by using your  keyboard. Keyboard shortcuts in iTunes 12 can be accessed by holding  down the Command (Mac) or Control (Windows) key and then pressing  numbers 1 through 9.
You can also easily change your media type using the View menu in the iTunes 12 menu bar.
 Sidebar and playlists

In iTunes 12, you can see your full music library and playlists  side-by-side, making it easy to browse your music and drag your favorite  songs into any playlist. iTunes also displays a built-in playlist to  help you quickly find your Music Videos. And you can access your devices  and Home Sharing libraries from the sidebar too.
To show the sidebar and your playlists, click on the music icon in the  upper-left corner of iTunes, and then click Playlists. Certain items  like devices and Home Sharing appear alongside the media icons, when  available.
List view

To view your music by Song, Album, Artist, Composer, or Genre, click the  current view under the Search tool in the upper-right corner. A pop-up  menu of other views will appear. When you select one of the views in the  menu, you'll see additional options for the view you're currently on,  like Sort By Title or Rating.
 Device management

iTunes 12 makes it easier to organize media on your iPhone, iPad, or  iPod touch. To view your device, connect it, then click the device  button next to the More button in the upper-left corner.
 Get Info
To see more info about an item, select it and choose File > Get Info.  Get Info has been completely redesigned in iTunes 12 to focus your  attention only on what’s necessary for the selected item.
If you’d like to add a field that isn’t visible, click Add Field in the  lower-left corner of the Get Info window. You can select additional  fields and set fields you’d like to always show. In iTunes 12, Get Info  opens on the Details tab, and information about the file can be found on  the File tab.
With the iTunes MiniPlayer, you can play music using a window that takes  up very little space on your screen. To access the MiniPlayer, click on  the album cover art or on the MiniPlayer icon   in the left corner of  the iTunes display where cover art normally appears. Or just choose  Window > Switch to MiniPlayer. You can drag the right or left edge of  the MiniPlayer to make it even smaller.
MiniPlayer has two different views, which you can change between by clicking the switch icon  .
 Account details
In iTunes 12, you can access your account information from anywhere in  iTunes. And you can quickly access your Wish List, Purchases or Family  Purchases (if you are using iCloud Family Sharing), or redeem a gift  card from the same menu. Click on your account name to see more options.
 Recently Added
iTunes puts recently added albums, movies, or TV shows at the top of  your library, so that you can always find something new to play.
You can change the frequency Recently Added updates or turn it off  completely in the view pop-up menu. The frequency options are This  Month, Last 3 Months, Last 6 Months, and Last Year. Uncheck the box next  to Show Recently Added to turn it off.
