Part1. How to Find iTunes Songs Location on a PC or Mac

First, a quick lesson on how to find iTunes library that is located on your PC or Mac computer.

PC - The media library’s location on a PC varies depending on the Windows version that you have on your computer. In any case, one of the following links should directly take you to the iTunes library.

For Windows XP use: C:Documents and SettingsusernameMy DocumentsMy MusiciTunes

For Windows Vista use: C:UsersusernameMusiciTunes

For Windows 7 use: C:UsersusernameMy MusiciTunes

For Windows 8 use: C:UsersusernameMy MusiciTunes

If you find the above directory links too cumbersome, there is another way, a shortcut with which you can access the iTunes library, as explained in the screenshot below.

Mac – Finding the iTunes songs library on a Mac is relatively easy since you can simply follow the direct path as given below or choose to access it via iTunes as given in the screenshot below.

The direct link - /Users/username/Music/iTunes/

Find iTunes Songs Location on a Mac

Now that you know how to access the iTunes songs library, whether you use PC or Mac, you can copy, move, make changes, and create a ringtone or whatever else out of the songs you like.

Part2. Creating a New iTunes Library Location on PC or Mac

This is one of the things that you may want to do if you too, like me, want to store your iTunes items in a location of your own choice. The process is quite similar, both on PC and Mac. Let me explain the simple steps involved in it.

First thing to do is to quit iTunes, if it is still running.

If you use Windows/PC - you have to hold down the ‘Shift’ key and from the ‘Start’ menu, follow the path; All Programs > iTunes > iTunes.

If you use Mac - you should open iTunes to begin with and then quickly hold down the ‘Option’ key.

You will now be able to see the option to ‘Choose’ or ‘Create’ a new library, see the screenshots attached

And, there you go, it is that easy to choose / create a new iTunes library.

Part3. How to Move your iTunes Library to a New Location

Now, you have already seen how easy it is to create a new iTunes library on your computer, both for Win and Mac. But, how about moving your iTunes library to a new computer altogether? Well, you will be happy to know that it is possible to move your iTunes library to a new computer and that you wouldn’t be losing out on any of the data in the process. I will explain the two methods that you could follow, one is the traditional way of simply copying all iTunes library data from the default folder to the new computer, and the other is my favourite and the easiest of them all, moving the iTunes library data using the KeepVid Music from Wondershare, to your new computer.

Before you begin with the process, don’t forget to create a backup of your iTunes library or update the existing backup as it would not only make the whole process much easy but also guarantee the safety of your iTunes library data. Now, with your backup ready, let us begin the process of moving your iTunes library to your new computer.

Traditional Method

Step 1: Download and install the latest version of iTunes on your old and new computer.

Step 2: Now, begin copying the iTunes backup from your old computer - in order to do this:

For Mac - Go > Home from the Finder menu bar and then double click on the Music folder

Step 4: Double click the external drive to open it.

Step 5: Drag the iTunes folder from your external drive to the Music folder (Mac) or My Music folder (Windows) on your new computer. The transfer may take a while depending on the amount of content you have.
