Reset iTunes Play count to zero

How do I Reset OSX Lion 10.7.2 / iTunes 10.5.2 (11)  batch Play count to zero? Google suggestions include click on Music in iTunes, select all then right click for pop-up - *No Go*, just deselects all but current line. My experience is not good with apple help; iTunes search for this subject included items about chess playing???

BTW - Works OK on PC WIN 7 Pro

Your problem is that you are not properly "right-clicking" as the context menu always appears when you right click on a file or selection of files.
It sounds like you are LEFT clicking on a single file after selecting ALL items.
Are you using a laptop or desktop, as this problem can be easy to create on a Laptop touchpad as the right click can be a little hard to select.

Apple have only relatively recently introduced the right mouse button so you can do everything on a Mac with the left mouse button when combined with the CTRL key.

Try this
In iTunes .. go to the list view where you can see all your Music.
Press the Apple/Command key and the letter A (this will select ALL tracks)
Now hold down the CTRL key and left click on any of the highlighted music tracks (a context menu should appear)
The "Reset Plays" option should be 1/2 way down this context menu.
