Itunes > For You > Search Results > Can't Select Multiple Tracks on Win 10

Years of experience with User Interfaces of all types.  Using Itunes on Win 10

Before, in Itunes, you could do a search from the "For You" tab.  

Open an album of say 13 tracks.  

Then, using Control + Click you could select multiple tracks.  Control + Click to select multiple files being one of the most common features of Windows.  

Since about the beginning of October seems like that no longer works in searched music from the For You tab.  

If I go into My Library and open an album it DOES work.  

But, albums searched from the For You tab and opened you can only select one song at a time, then click add.

What do you think is happening?  I even uninstalled Itunes then reinstalled.  Same behavior.

Thanks!

Try ctrl + a  for all
should select all even in a web page. Or anything open
using it on EE web page it selects all just for illustration only, using  it with your folder of music it will highlight all the tracks then use ctrl -c for copy
ctrl plus a

Hi!

Thanks for your answer.  Seems like you're thinking I want to select all of the HTML / content on a page?  Not what I meant.

Take for example an album with 43 tracks.  The White Album, for instance (tracks listed below for fun!).  Now, previously, if I wanted to add 21 of these 43 tracks from the "For You" tab, all I had to do was Ctrl + Click each one - and I could select all 21 that I wanted.  Then, click "Add".  Add all 21 at once.

Now, that's not working.  The only way to add the 21 songs would be to click each one and individually add them.

Put another way - selectively choosing multiple songs via Ctrl + Click and then adding them all at once is no longer working.

Side one      
1      "Back in the U.S.S.R."  
2      "Dear Prudence"  
3      "Glass Onion"  
4      "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da"  
5      "Wild Honey Pie"  
6      "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill"  
7      "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"(George Harrison)
8      "Happiness Is a Warm Gun"  
Side two      
9      "Martha My Dear"  
10      "I'm So Tired"  
11      "Blackbird"  
12      "Piggies"(Harrison)
13      "Rocky Raccoon"  
14      "Don't Pass Me By" (Ringo Starr)
15      "Why Don't We Do It in the Road?"  
16      "I Will"  
17      "Julia"  
No.      Title
1      "Birthday"  
2      "Yer Blues"  
3      "Mother Nature's Son"  
4      "Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey"  
5      "Sexy Sadie"  
6      "Helter Skelter"  
7      "Long, Long, Long" (Harrison)
No.      Title
8      "Revolution 1"  
9      "Honey Pie"  
10      "Savoy Truffle"(Harrison)
11      "Cry Baby Cry"  
12      "Revolution 9"  
13      "Good Night"

Is this in the Itunes folder? As these are libraries.'

Did you move them?
Any ideas what changed?
If it helps here's a rehash of the shortcut keys and as I now see that is using the same as I suggested, could you explain what difference you have?

Hi Merete!

Ah!  Just for illustration I get it. :))

Nope - nothing's changed as far as I can see.  This is why I'm baffled.

Seems to occur just from the "for You" tab, or when I search for an album.  I can see all the tracks in an album, but I can only select them one by one.

What do you think?

Hi oaktrees, according to Apple,
Apple Music offers a section called "For You" which provides a personalized selection of music based on your listening habits, based on that if your listening habits have changed could be those files are just a text / like a playlist, and has not refreshed, Or the ratings have changed and you'll need to look elswhere

 The ctrl+c does work for you yes? outside of this "for you tab" when you access the folder?
