Chapter 7. Configuring an iPod to Suit Y... > Setting Up Your Main Menu Preference...

Setting Up Your Main Menu Preferences

You can configure the commands on the iPod's Main menu to customize it to suit your preferences. For example, suppose you frequently browse your music by artist. You can add the Artists command to the Main menu so you don't have to drill down through the Music menu to get to this category you use frequently. To configure your Main menu, do the following steps:

1.
Select Main menu, Settings. The Settings menu will appear.

2.
Highlight Main Menu and press the Select button. You'll see the Main menu (see Figure 7.6). On this menu, each command is listed along with its current Main menu state. If On is listed next to a command, it appears on the Main menu. If Off is listed next to a command, it doesn't appear on the Main menu. The commands are grouped into categories, including Music, Extras, and so on.

Figure 7.6. You can add items to the Main menu by turning them on or remove them by turning them off.


3.
To add a command to the Main menu, highlight it and press the Select button so that On is listed next to that command (see Figure 7.7). That command will then appear on the Main menu.

Figure 7.7. When On appears next to a command, such as the Artists command, it will be on the Main menu.


4.
To remove a command from the Main menu, highlight it and press the Select button so that Off is listed next to that command. That command will not appear on the Main menu.

tip

To return the Main menu to its default commands, select Main menu, Settings, Main Menu, Reset Main Menu. Select Reset again to confirm the command. The iPod's Main menu will be just like it was when you first powered it up.

5.
Repeats step 3 or 4 for each command until you have set all the commands you want on the Main menu to On and all those you don't want to appear on the Main menu to Off. When you view the Main menu, your command preferences will be in effect (see Figure 7.8).

Figure 7.8. Using the Main menu settings, I customized the Main menu on this iPod (notice that I can use the Artists command on the Main menu to more quickly browse this iPod's music by artist).
