In this lesson for iTunes on the Mac we look at the shuffle and repeat options we have with media in iTunes.
To shuffle the music you are listening to, as an example, let’s say you are listening to an album and you want to rearrange the tracks. There are a couple ways to shuffle what you are listening to in iTunes, you can click on the Shuffle icon to the left of the display in iTunes, or you can select Shuffle under Controls in the Menu bar.
When you shuffle, you can set it to shuffle songs, albums, or groupings, To select what you want to shuffle, again go to Controls in the menu bar and elect Shuffle. You’ll be able to choose what you want to shuffle from there.
To turn shuffling off, just click on the shuffle icon again, or go to the menu bar and under Controls you can turn it off.
To repeat what you are listening to, click on the repeat icon to the right of the display in iTunes. You can also go under Controls in the menu bar and select Repeat.
There are a couple options when you repeat what you are listening to, do you want to repeat the song? Or to repeat all, such as all the songs in an album? You select what you want it to repeat by clicking on the icon to the right of the display. If you see a numeral 1 in the repeat icon, it will repeat just the song. Click on it again to change the option. You can also go under Controls in the menu bar to select what you want to repeat.
