    Listening to an album in iTunes, while navigating through library
    Hello everyone, this is my first post. My apologies if this has been discussed before.

    I am running the latest version of iTunes on a Macbook. But my issue has been occurring ever since I got my Mac (roughly a year ago, so I've been through several iTunes updates).

    Basically, I would like to listen to an album while navigating through my library. Apparently, my iTunes doesn't like this. It will stop playing after the current track ends, and will not go to the next track in the album UNLESS I'm actually looking at the album.

    For example, I click on Artist A. I see their albums in my list. I double-click on an album. The album starts playing from track 1. If I leave iTunes alone and don't navigate away from the album I'm listening to, iTunes will go on to track 2, 3, etc.

    However, let's say track 1 is playing and I decide to go look at another artist. So I single-click on Artist B. I just wanted to see the name of a song or something. I didn't double-click on anything. So I'm looking at Artist B, and the track that I'm listening to ends. At this point, I'll hear....nothing!!!! iTunes will simply stop playing. It won't go on to the next track. However, if I had navigated back to the album I was listening to BEFORE THE TRACK HAD ENDED, then it WILL go on to the next track.

    Is there a setting tucked away somewhere that I'm not seeing? I love my Mac, but iTunes sucks as far as I'm concerned. I liked WMP 1000% better, due to this reason.

    Hmm, I just tried what you said you're doing. Started an album then moved to another and it keeps on playing the prev one fine, so, there does seem to be an issue here. But I'm ****ed if I know what it is. Sorry.

    hmm, that's odd. But at least I'm getting somewhere. Now I at least know that iTunes is supposed to continue playing the album. So it's not a design issue, it's a setting issue or a bug.
