The sidebar will display, so you can deposit that item in a playlist.
You may simply dump your media files in your i Tunes library and play them by searching for them, or in shuffle mode.
i Tunes 12, released with OS X Yosemite, features a new interface, which fits better with Apple’s overall desire for flatness, but changes a lot of the ways that users work with their media library.
i Tunes has a useful little window called the Mini Player.
This control window floats above the i Tunes window—and your other windows—giving you quick access to the play/pause button, the next and previous buttons, volume controls and more.
There are a number of annoyances in i Tunes 12; some features work differently than before, and some features are missing.
Here’s a look at the biggest annoyances of i Tunes 12, and how you can fix them.
With this third method, you now press Command-Option-M to view the Mini Player and Command-Shift-M to switch to the Mini Player.
You can still click the artwork thumbnail on the Mini Player to display album art, together with controls: When you click the close button on the Mini Player, things are also different.
Or, second method, you can click the album art thumbnail in the i Tunes LCD (the part at the top of the i Tunes window showing what is playing).
The behavior here is different from i Tunes 11: when you click this album art thumbnail, this performs the same thing as when you choose Switch to Mini Player, hiding the i Tunes window.
Note that if the sidebar is not visible, you can make it temporarily visible.
