Make iTunes 10s traffic lights horizontal

| Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

Apple released iTunes 10 yesterday (September 1st, 2010) and there are two things that I don’t like about it. First, the ugly new iTunes icon, and second, the traffic lights. Apple made the traffic lights in this version of iTunes vertical. Fortunately, both of these “problems” are easy fixes. For the icon, I just downloaded a replacement icon, and for the traffic lights, I used Terminal.app to make them horizontal.

So, the first thing to do is open up Terminal. Once it’s open, enter the following command:

defaults write com.apple.iTunes full-window -1

That should make the traffic lights horizontal. If you ever want to set them back to vertical, just type:

defaults write com.apple.iTunes full-window -0
