How To Change The Name Of A Song On iTunes
Learning how to change the name of a song on iTunes is essential when half of your songs in your library look untidy or grammatically incorrect. It might come as good news to you to find out that there is actually something you can do about the awkward song names or mismatched Artist and Title fields, and here’s how you can do it.
To change the name of a song on iTunes, you will need:
- A song in your iTunes library
- First, open iTunes and make sure that it’s running. You can either open it from your desktop, or click Start>All Programs, and navigate to it that way.
- Next, find that name of a song in iTunes that you’d like to change. If you’ve got a lot of songs in your library, an incorrect name of a song shouldn’t be too hard to find. Simply find the song and select it, but don’t play it.
- Once you’ve selected the song, right-click it. You’ll be given a list of things to do with the song, but for now, you should be looking for and clicking on an option called, “Get Info.”
- You’ll see a new window appear with information in it. You’ll see information such as the size of the file, the file’s location, the file’s format, and much more useful information. Search along the top of the window for a tab called “Info.” Click it.
- You are now at the control center for fixing the name of a song. You’ll see a box that is titled “Name.” This is where you will change the name of a song on iTunes. Simply erase the information in the box, and type the correct title. You can also edit other information such as the artist, the album, comments, genre, etc.
- Once you’re happy with your changes, select “OK.” You’ll notice that the name will change in iTunes and will be filed accordingly.
