    iTunes store too big?
    I noticed just recently when I try to view an artists full album I get all the info from left to right except the per song price? I thought you were able to scroll left to right to get this before but I no longer have this scroll option. Is there a setting where I can make the iTunes store smaller so it captures everything within the screen?

    I cannot duplicate this problem. Are you running the latest version of iTunes?

    I have the same problem. Using version 9.0.3. Can't scroll to the right and see the right hand side of the information, including purchasing the songs! Would love to be able to see the whole page at once? Make all the text smaller perhaps? IMHO the original format was much easier to use....

    What is the screen resolution on your Mac set to (in Displays pref pane)? I think the current version of iTunes throws up a message saying it is optimized for 1024 x 768.

    Looks to me like they messed up in this regard with the latest version of iTunes (the app). The horizontal scrollbar is gone when you make the window smaller than their optimized size for the window. It auto adjusts to fit the window as you make it larger, but not when you make it smaller.

    Hitting the green button no longer changes it to the optimized size for viewing either. It only minimizes to the player or changes it back to the size you have set.

    Your only option currently is going to be to drag the screen to a larger dimension so that you can see it.

    I knew something was different but hadn't figured out what the change was. I don't notice it most of the time because i have a larger window. Is that 1024 x 768 warning new as well? I don't remember it before now.

    I still have not seen that size warning. Only noticed the "problem", as I do use the iTunes window smaller than this "optimized" size.

    I just tried this at a couple of resolutions. It seems to occur if the resolution is something less than 1024 x 768. I get the warning at 800 x 600 for example but not at 1024 x 768 and higher.

    My resolution is set as suggested 1024 x 768 and it still doesn't work. Seems to me they have designed it for people with those new fandangled LARGE screens!
