How do I stopi-Tunes from downloading songs on my device which I did not order and which I then have to delete?

How can I stop i-Tunes from downloading songs on my device which I did not order and which I then have to delete because I do not want it?

Does swiping/dragging across the tracks from right-to-left (or possibly left-to-right depending upon the iOS version) in the Downloads tab in the iTunes store app stop them downloading ?
If it's the U2 album Songs of Innocence then  : http://itunes.com/soi-remove
If it's a different album/tracks and you didn't buy them, and nobody else has access to your account and/or devices and bought them, then contact iTunes Support :  http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/ - click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page

    Hi iprover,
      Let me first say that I am NO EXPERT with anything Apple and really have only started looking into this iCloud stuff a few hours ago because I'm trying to help my mom free up some space on her iCloud. But anyway, here's what I'm learning and what I THINK might be happening to you.
    Also, if any Apple support people (do they browse the forums to dish out helpful hints?) or people who probably know infinitely more than me about this stuff, please do chime in and confirm / correct my statements!
    This is what I gather.
    iCloud for Windows is set up with a local folder (let's call it "C:\Users\Administrator\Pictures\iCloud Photos\My Photo Stream") where iCloud will store photos uploaded to the Photo Stream. This will allow you to view your Photo Stream photos on your PC.
    This does not mean that this is a PC backup of your Photo Stream photos, but just a way to view your Photo Stream from your PC. That being said, the general Photo Stream rules apply: 1. No videos are on the photo-stream, and 2. Photos on the Photo Stream will be removed after ~30 days and/or after hitting the Photo Stream limit of 1000 photos.
    My guess is that the iCloud Windows App will delete photos from the local folder that are older than ~30 days and/or delete all but the most recent 1000 items if the 1000-item limit is reached.
    That is a scary thought! I really hope you did not lose all your pictures, but my guess is that the iCloud local folder is NOT meant for backup but instead is the iCloud Windows App's sandbox for updating and managing Photo Stream photos.
    All that being said, I'd say it's important to back up your photos in a separate folder not related to the iCloud local folder.

  • How do I stop apps from downloading to my other devices?

    Open iTunes on your computer and go to Preferences/Store/Automatic Downloads. Is your son's Apple ID listed there and any of the content check boxes marked?

  • I preordered an album in error that is scheduled to download next week.  How do I stop it from downloading?  I no longer want to purchase it.

    I preordered an album in error that is scheduled to download next week.  How do I stop it from downloading?  I no longer want to purchase it.

    Downloading a pre-ordered item
    When a pre-order item becomes available, you will receive an email letting you know your pre-order is available for download.
    If you've enabled iTunes to automatically download prepurchased content, then your pre-order content may already be downloaded to your library. If not, simply click the download link provided within your email notification, and your pre-order content will begin to download. Alternatively you can use the "Check for Available Downloads" feature in iTunes on your computer by choosing Store > Check for Available Downloads to begin downloading your pre-order.
    I would contact iTunes if clicking on the link did not results in it downloading to your iPod.

    How to enable private mode from commandline, with an URL.
    I am a software dev and I wish to have my application open links in Firefox.
    Using ShellExecute(), i can do with with commandlines like:
    firefox.exe http://support.mozilla.org
    But I also want the option to open the link in private mode.
    I am able to start firefox in private mode by doing this:
    firefox.exe -private
    However, if I add a link to the command line
    firefox.exe -private http://support.mozilla.org
    I get strange results.
    If firefox is not running, it launches 2 copies of the application.
    One that opens in private mode and the other opens in normal mode and goes to the URL specified.
    If firefox is already running, it just opens the URL in a new tab.
    No private mode instance is launched.
    Am I using the command-line syntax incorrectly?

    It will never work if Firefox is already running as Firefox will use the already opened Firefox instance.<br />
    In that case only using a separate profile will work.
    You can try to specify the -url switch as well.
    *firefox.exe -private -url http://support.mozilla<i></i>.org
    You can also look at the -new-tab switch.
    *firefox.exe -private -new-tab http://support.mozilla<i></i>.org
    *https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Command_Line_Options

  • HT2311 After waiting 27 minutes while the new iTunes supposedly downloaded onto my computer, the Finder window did not appear, and the iTunes.mpkg icon didn't appear on my desktop (where downloads usually go).  What do I do?

    After waiting 27 minutes while the new iTunes supposedly downloaded onto my computer, the Finder window did not appear, and the iTunes.mpkg icon didn't appear on my desktop (where downloads usually go).  I also looked for the new iTunes by clicking on my Hard Drive icon but didn't see it there either.  I only see the icon for the old iTunes.  What do I do?

    The exclamation mark means that the app has lost the link to the actual file.
    First step: try and make sure the iPhoto Library is working correctly:
    Go to the App Store and check out the Purchases List. If iPhoto is there then it will be v9.6.1
    If it is there, then drag your existing iPhoto app (not the library, just the app) to the trash
    Install the App from the App Store.
    Sometimes iPhoto is not visible on the Purchases List. it may be hidden. See this article for details on how to unhide it.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4928
    One question often asked: Will I lose my Photos if I reinstall?
    iPhoto the application and the iPhoto Library are two different parts of the iPhoto programme. So, reinstalling the app should not affect the Library. BUT you should always have a back up before doing this kind of work. Always.

  • How do I stop iTunes from downloading multiple copies of a TV show?

    This is driving me nuts.  Using Doctor Who as the example, for each episode released, iTunes tries to download two HD copies and one SD copy.  I don't need the SD, nor do I need to duplicate HD.  Yet I can't stop it from trying to download them when I start iTunes, nor can I figure out how to permanently remove or cancel a pending download.
    Anyone have any idea how to stop this?
    -- edit ---
    Didn't have much luck matching search terms for this before posting, yet after posting links came up referencing other queries in which people asked how to stop iTunes from downloading the HD and SD versions of a TV show.  Consensus seems to be that iTunes will always download each version, which is just plain silly.  Haven't seen any explaination, however, on why it then tries to download a second HD copy.

    That is correct.  This is the way it is ALL HD purchases come with the SD version.

    -= Changing the application used to open all files of a certain kind (written with reference to OSX 10.4 but may not have changed) =-
    1) In a Finder window highlight a file of the kind you want to change the application to open that kind of file.
    2) While that file is highlighted, select File > Get Info or press command (apple or propeller icon) + i to get a file information window.
    3) In the lower part of the info window there is an "open with" menu with a list of applications.
    4) If your application is already in the box then it is the default application for opening that kind of file and you don't need to do anything more.  Close the get info window.
    5) If the application showing in the menu is not the one with which you wish to open the file then select a new application. If your application does not appear there then select the "other..." and track down the application (usually in the Applications folder at the main level of the computer).
    6) If you wish to change all files of this type to open with this application in future, make sure the "change all" button is selected.
    7) Close the get info window.

  • How do I stop duplicates from downloading?

    My iTunes library on my Mac is syncing transfers from my iPad and for some reason after the sync, my Mac started downloading some of those purchases from iTunes automatically. What gives? Do I have to download them in order to delete the duplicates or can I stop them from downloading? How can I prevent this from happening in the future?

    You can't stop the download, only pause it. Let it finish.

  • How do I stop texts from being seen on multiple devices on the same iTunes account

    I just updated my iphone 4s to ios 6 and now my texts are being viewed on another iphone connected to the same itunes account. How do I stop this from happening??

    Go into Settings -> Messages -> Send & Receive on the devices that your would not like to get your text messages to.
    Then remove the email addresses that you would not like to be reached on, especially the one that is the same as your Apple ID.
    Just leave the phone number there, and then the text messages should only appear on your iPhone 4s.

  • How do i stop Mail from downloading all my old messages without deleting them

    Hello there,
        i've just bought a new 13 inch macbook pro, and i'm very happy with it. Being sort of new to apple i still have some problems though.
    the main one concerns mail:   How do I prevent my laptop from downloading thousands of old messages i had stored on my gmail account?
    let me be clearer: i set mail up and it instantly started downloading tons of old messages that i don't want stored on my mac, since it only has 128gb storage, but i'd still like to be able to look for them in case I needed to.  so i don't want to permanently erase them, get rid of them here to save some space.
    is that possible? and if yes how?
    I also have an other problem with Mail and it's the fact that gmail doesn't let me send pages files...it says it could be a dangerous file so it stops me.  
    any solutions?
    thanks to all of you

    Unchecking Mail will do nothing at all.
    And as Gmail is an Imap account it will download all mail in the account to the client.
    If this is unwanted behaviour use a different email system (a POP system) or remove the mail from the Gmail server.
    Gmail  can be configured as POP or IMAP
