It's not obvious, is it?

I'm not sure that this is what is needed.

I can't find how to do it but, as the OP says, when first installed, iTunes scans the whole of your computer, not just a folder, looking for music

Still looking for a way to force iTunes to repeat that

In the case of Windows, I can tell it

C:\Users\myaccount and since that's all my stuff it works.

Later I can use the consolidate feature. It's a workaround but seems to work when folk cancel it.

On a Mac just tell it to search your User folder.

Job done

Sorry I missed that.
