Controlling iTunes from the Dock!

What you might not know is that the menu that pops up when you right-click or click and hold on any icon in the Dock often has useful features. iTunes is a great example as it lets you control: Play/Pause/Next/Previous/Mute. You can also quickly know what is playing.

You can also go to a song on iTunes, and highlight until it's blue. Then you can type a song name such as "Snow", and it will jump to that song, as appose to searching for the song. You don't even have to type the whole S-N-O-W, you can type the beginning if you have no other songs starting with S-N... and it will jump to that song.

In order to "jump" to songs like that, you have to actually have your library sorted by songs. For example, if you sort your library by artist, and type in "White Stripes" it will go to the artist instead of a song with that name.

Thanks guys, good to have the original tip and also this one. You can also control iTunes through Quicksilver (without which I now could not function!) via hotkeys.
