How iTunes arranges music
by mrmacfixit Forum moderator / November 15, 2011 2:24 AM PST

inside the iTunes folder is sometimes a concern for some users of iTunes.
iTunes stores things in its own way and the important thing is how they are displayed in the iTunes application window itself.

In the main iTunes window, sort the view by Album and all the relevant tracks will be grouped together in albums.

Make playlists of each album will allow you to view each album separately.

Exporting to an SD card should not need the assistance of third party software.
Open the SD card window and drag what you want from iTunes to the SD card window.

Yeah, that's what I currently have to do as said above, but surely there is a third party program etc that can create a folder by album name or something for me ? Otherwise all Itunes does is make my MP3s completely unmanageable by anything other than itself !

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
