For moving the buttons back to normal go to 'terminal', then at the command prompt type:

defaults write full-window -boolean YES

To revert to the v10 buttons: defaults write full-window -boolean NO
Then hit return. Exit terminal and run iTunes as you won't get any notification that anything has happened.

Worked for me, but use at your own risk :D

PS If you run multiple accounts on one machine, I think you need to do it for each account.

Edit: URL is:

Note that the original uses : defaults write full-window -1
and defaults write full-window -0
History is a nightmare from which I am trying to escape

Some of these -from about 10 years ago- were really good. Too bad Apple went with SoundJam instead of Audion.



BTW, I won't update to iTunes 10 until it's absolutely necessary. I only use it to play music, and don't like it that much. Never did.

For the most part my interaction with iTunes is choosing a playlist. The rest is done via Sizzling Keys. So ... I don't really care about interface changes.

Vertical buttons? Pity.
