itunes 8 question - how to turn off links to itunes store

I've always turned off those little itunes store links next to each song/artist/album, etc, but I can't find the magic check box in the prefs of IT8 anywhere.

anybody know where to point me?

arrow next to item or playlist

Click to go to the item or to publish the playlist in the iTunes Store (turn these arrows off or on in the General pane of iTunes preferences)

I'm looking at the general pane of prefs, and I don't see the check box anywhere. I recall it being there in previous versions because I'd always turn it off, but I don't see it anywhere in IT8.

maybe they moved it or changed how it works, I don't know.

Sorry for the wrong info . . . it came from the iTunes 8 help file.

My arrows were turned off in iTunes 7 and remained off through the update process to iTunes 8.

Lucky me.

bingo! worked like a charm.

Now why on earth did Apple get rid of that preference?

Why on earth indeed.

In iT8, do the arrows show all the time, or just when an item is highlighted?

I seem to recall that early on it was the former, and lately has been the latter, which I use from time to time.

For those uncomforatble using Terminal, there's an app that does the same thing.

Thank you!!

The arrows only showed up when the song had played or when highlighted. I had this 'feature' turned off in the previous iTunes & the fact that I was unable to turn it off in 8 bugged the hell out of me.

Also, has anyone turned on the Genius feature? That smacks of Big Brother to me. I can make my own playlists, thank you very much.

Just so everyone knows, those links can be helpful within your Library as well. If you Option-click on them, they take you to that entire Artist, Album, Genre, etc. IN YOUR LIBRARY, not the store... That's a good one to know about, eh?

Have fun,
John

I think it's just weird. When I option-click the arrow, it makes anything but that album's list disappear from the list window. That's OK, not that I've really ever wanted that. I'm often already sorting or searching by album anyway, so this isn't a new way of seeing for me.

But the default behavior, which 99.99999% of most users might do, takes you to where you can buy it from the store. Even though you already have it. Now that's what I call Genius.
