After a lengthy discussion on iTunes 11, its characteristics and the changes introduced, here we are at the final step: the shortcuts. In this short article we will show you how you can quickly move through iTunes with a single button!

It’s difficult to continue to use the mouse when we discover that, there is a convenient and fast shortcut, or a shortcut. The shortcut keys are pressed in a different sequence, leads us directly to a predefined action. But we go directly to see the hot keys that we can use to control iTunes 11.

Some of the well-known shortcuts are:

  • The space bar, which allows you to play or pause a song
  • The left and right arrows, thanks to which you can move respectively to the next or previous track

But other shortcuts have been added in iTunes 11. Pressing the Command key (cmd), followed by a number key from 1 to 7 at the same time, you will be able to switch to one of the following options. Here’s the list of commands:

  • Command-1: Music
  • Command-2: Movie
  • Command-3: TV
  • Command-4: Podcasts
  • Command-5: iTunes U
  • Command-6: Books
  • Command-7: Applications

We tried ourselves, but we must warn you sometimes do not work. For example, clicking cmd-5 does not get iTunes U as active screen: You must first manually select another screen in which to open it.

Another shortcut is introduced that allows you to add new songs to playlist: to do so, simply press Option (Alt)-return, after selecting the song from the music library. Click on the track with the mouse or use the up and down arrows to select the track that you want to insert, and then press option-return.
