How to Use the iTunes Search Feature

By Tony Bove

You can search for content within your iTunes library. You search for content by using the Search field, which is the oval field in the upper-right corner.

  1. Click in the Search field and enter several characters of your search term.


    Use these tips for successful searching:

    • Specify your search. Include a specific title, artist, or album.

    • Narrow your search. Type more characters. Using fewer characters results in a longer list of possible songs.

    • Case doesn’t matter. Nor do whole words.

  2. Look through the results, which display while you type.


    The search operation works immediately, displaying any matches in the Name, Artist, and Album columns.

  3. Scroll through the search results and then click an item to select it.


    To back out of a search so that the full list appears again, you can either click the circled X in the Search field or delete what you typed in the Search field.
