Change a song or album's genre

Issue: 

iTunesTags4NReview it and change the genre associated with a specific album or song by following these steps. In this example, I'm changing the genre of the Bob Dylan album, "Christmas In the Heart" from "Holiday" to "Folk" (Fig. 4).

Fig. 4: Use the "Genre" drop-down to change genres for multiple albums.

  1. In the Albums column, select the desired album or albums.
  2. Open the "Get Info" dialog box (Command-I on the Mac; Control-I on the PC). Click "Yes" in the resulting dialog box that asks "Are you sure you want to edit information for multiple items."
  3. Go to the Info tab and select the Genre drop-down menu at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Select the genre you want to tag the album with and click "OK."
  5. Note that if the Bob Dylan album was the only one associated with the Holiday genre, once I change it to Folk, the Holiday disappears from the genre list.
