12. Master iTunes > Change the Size of the iTunes Window

Change the Size of the iTunes Window

Lovely as iTunes is, it takes up a heck of a lot of screen real estate. So when you’re working on other things, you can shrink iTunes down to size. In fact, iTunes runs in three sizes: small, medium, and large:

  1. Large. This is what you get the first time you open iTunes. (Hate the music hard-sell from the iTunes sidebar on the right? Close it by clicking the square button in the lower-right corner.)

  2. Medium. Switch back and forth between large and medium by pressing Ctrl+M (Shift-⌘-M) or choosing View→Switch to Mini Player.

  3. Small. To really scrunch things down, start with the medium-size window, then drag the lower right corner leftward. To expand the panel, reverse the process.

Tired of losing your mini-iTunes window among the vast stack of open windows on your screen? Make the iTunes mini-player always visible on top of other open documents, windows, and assorted screen detritus. Open iTunes’ Preferences window (Ctrl+comma [⌘-comma]), click the Advanced tab, and then turn on the checkbox next to “Keep Mini Player on top of all other windows.” Now you won’t have to click frantically around the screen trying to find iTunes if you get caught listening to your bubblegum-pop playlist at work.
