As indicated in my last post, did you download your iTunes app onto your Windows10 machine from the WINDOWS App store? It's a WINDOWS app which is simply downloaded onto your WIN10 PC. If you did that I must say I'm stumped as to why you are not seeing the tabs I photographed off my PC.

The iTtunes that I am using is via an icon on the desktop and also located in the Apps section of my Windows 10.
My Windows 10 was an upgrade from the Windows 7 OS. As far as I can remember, I downloaded my original iTunes via a Google search some time ago when I purchased my iPad. At the time I did that, that was the only way to get iTunes onto a Windows PC, and over time I simply upgraded iTunes as they came along.

I believe the menu bar may be hidden in iTunes (by default?). Not having a Windows machine I cannot suggest the method for unhiding them, but it may be just a matter of hovering over the area or clicking a certain icon to reveal the menu.

I have clicked anywhere and everywhere to see if there was a way of opening the hidden Menu, (if that was the case) but if there is in fact such animal, then it has beaten me because I simply can not find it. I found the hidden menu bar in Internet Explorer without any problem, but as for iTunes????

Hi Guys.

I do not know where you got your iTunes from, or maybe more to the point where did I get my iTunes from because they are not the same.

Reading through your excellent tutorial and pictures I can safely say that I do not have the desired menu bar with the said functions ANYWHERE on my iTunes panel !!!!!

It is simply missing. I have tried clicking on anything and everything just in case it was hidden, but no joy at all.

I am stumped as to what to do now.

Regards

If you can't see the menu bar there are two ways to show it. First is by pressing CTRL-B to toggle the menu bar on or off. The other is by pressing the ALT key to show it temporarily.

Roy, you are a God, a man amongst men, a giant.....is that a bit over the top?

As you may have guessed, that did it CTL + B is the way to go.

I also thanks every one that contributed by posting suggestions.

Thanks again.

This kind of willingness of members to help others is what makes this forum great, and why I enjoy it so much. Difficult problems that crop up here don't seem to take that long to resolve. The impossible ones take just a little bit longer:)
