12. Mastering iTunes > Edit Song Information

Edit Song Information

Tired of seeing so many tunes named Untitled? You can change song titles in iTunes—to enter a song’s real name, for example, or to fix a typo—a couple of ways.

In the song list, click the text you want to change, wait a moment, and then click again. The title now appears highlighted and you can edit the text—just like when you change file names on a desktop computer.

Another way to change a song’s title, artist name, or other information is to click the song in the iTunes window and press Ctrl+I (⌘-I) to summon the Get Info box. (Choose File→Get Info if you forget the keyboard shortcut.) Click the Info tab and type in the new track information.

Too much work? You can always try Advanced→Get CD Track Names and see what comes up, although the Gracenote database iTunes uses may not know the title, either, if it’s something deeply obscure or homemade.
