Regular Hassle-Free PC (HFPC) readers know that I love keyboard shortcuts. Not, not love: lurve. (Quick trivia quiz: Name the movie in which that word was coined.) So today let’s talk about the five best ways to zip around iTunes without ever taking your hands off the ol’ QWERTY.
Ctrl-N: Create a new playlist
Ctrl-Up Arrow/Ctrl-Down Arrow: Raises and lowers the volume, respectively.
Ctrl-Left Arrow/Ctrl-Right Arrow: Skip back a song and skip ahead a song, respectively.
Ctrl-Shift-H: Takes you directly to the iTunes Store home page.
Space Bar: Play/pause the current song. (In other words, hit Space once to pause the song, again to resume, and so on.)
