I wish I could help you Ed. For years iTunes has been asking me to download an update and I always click on the "Don't Download" button. I refuse to get an update filled with issues like the one you describe.

I don't want features I enjoy to disappear overnight or worse. I have read online from iTunes users who have had funky things happen to their playlists and/or music files so I just don't bother with updates any longer. When it comes to iTunes my motto is "if it's not broke don't fix it."

I don't use iTunes either, but did some Googling for
you. Will this help?



1. Open iTunes Preferences.
2. Windows: Choose Edit > Preferences.
3. Mac: Choose iTunes > Preferences.
4. Click the General button, then click the Import
Settings button in the lower section of the window.
5. From the Import Using pop-up menu, choose the
encoding format that you want to convert the song to. To
save the settings, click OK.
6. Select one or more songs in your library that you
want to convert.
7. Choose File > Create New Version, then Create
[format] Version. The format shown is the one that you
chose in step 3. For example, if you chose Apple
Lossless Encoder, select Create Apple Lossless Version.
New song files appear in your library next to the
original files.

Apple installs a "software updater" on your PC. They do
this without telling you and it gets put there anytime you
install or update a piece of their software. Get rid of
that and it then can't automatically update your I-tunes
If you are using Windows 10 you may need to also adjust
some settings there as well. Its default settings are to
run your life for you.

Ed, I just had to update my iTunes to the latest one (at least I thought I needed to.) My PC (where I've kept my inTunes) has Windows XP and I've used the last version of iTunes that was available for XP (an old version, obviously). Then I got a notice from apple saying apple would no longer support iTunes with XP. They led me to believe I couldn't add more songs or playlists to my iTunes and connect them to my phone - something I'll absolutely need to continue doing. (I later found out, according to Mark Mathews) this is false. But I didn't know. As it turns out, I also have an iMac (since 2014), but I just didn't use it for iTunes. Given the email apple sent me, I decided to transfer everything to my iMac and go with the latest version of iTunes. This involved 7 and a half hours of phone support with apple to get iTunes (latest version) up and running the way I wanted on my iMac. (I'm not exaggerating about the time involved. One 5-hour phone call, followed by a 2.5 hour phone call), and I still have 1 unresolved issue. (It randomly deletes album cover artwork from my mp3s on the phone, 500+ songs at a time.) So I'm trying to figure out some of the changes, too. I'll try to help with answers once I figure them out myself... unless you go back to iTunes 10. But I don't understand this question:

< do i
get the formatting in the 'library/songs' tab to look
like the same when i create a 'playlist'

Can you elaborate?
