4.5. Deleting Songs

If you want to delete a song or songs—like when you outgrow your Britney Spears phase and want to reclaim some hard drive space by dumping those tracks from the Oops…I Did It Again album—click the title in the Albums pane, select the songs you want to delete from the song list, and press Delete (Backspace).


Note:

Selecting songs works just like selecting files in the Finder. Select a swath of consecutive songs in the list by clicking the first, then Shift-clicking the last. Add or remove single additional songs to the selection by -clicking (Mac) or Ctrl-clicking (Windows).


When iTunes asks if you're sure you want to delete the music, click Yes. You'll usually be asked twice about deleting a song, the first time for deleting it from a list, the second time about deleting the music file from your iTunes music library altogether. If you want your hard drive space back, click Yes to both.
