There is no menu tab for authorizing computers

where is the tab for authorizing computers

Hi ythu,
Thanks for visiting Apple Support Communities.
If you're using iTunes for Windows, you may need to reveal the menu:
iTunes: Turning on iTunes menus in Windows 8 and 7
To turn on iTunes menus in Windows 8 or 7, do one of the following:
Press the Alt key.
This will turn the menus on and off temporarily. This will change back to the default, the iTunes menus being turned off, when you next close iTunes.
To keep the iTunes menus active, change the setting by selecting the Menu icon in the upper-left, and then selecting Show Menu Bar. Alternatively, you can press Control-B.
After this, you'll be able to authorize your computer by following these steps:
iTunes Store: About authorization and deauthorization
From the Store menu, choose Authorize This Computer. (In earlier versions of iTunes, access this option from the Advanced menu).
When prompted, enter your Apple ID and password, then click Authorize.

  • Why is there a separate menu item for "Page setup" when there is already a tab for it in the "Print..." menu?

    I just can't see the point of having the same options in two places! The "Page Setup" tab from the "Print..." menu item has more options, relating to printer features, whereas the "Page Setup" dialogue box is basic and looks to me to be a little 'shoddy'. I'd have thought it would be a good idea to have the 'better' set of features available, but from it's own menu item, rather than a tab. And no duplicated controls!!

    Firefox on Windows doesn't have Page Setup in the Print dialog, it is in the Print Preview window.
    That isn't the only menu item that appears in multiple places. '''View Page Info''' is in the Tools menu (on Windows) and in the Contextual menu. '''Bookmark this Page''' is in the Bookmarks menu and the Contextual menu, along with the Tab Context menu.

  • I bought an IPhone 3gs and tried to reset the APN but when I click on settings then General they tell me to click on the "Network" tab but there is not a tab for "Network"? After Network, I was supposed to go to Cellular Data Settings?

    I bought an IPhone 3gs and tried to reset the APN through Strait Talk Wireless but when I click on settings then "General" tab they tell me to click on the "Network" tab but there is not a "Network" tab? After Network, I was supposed to go to Cellular Data Settings but I can't find the Network tab under the General tab. I watched videos and every IPhone I saw had the Network tab but mine don't, can anyone please help this old man fix this new technology, so I can use the Internes and MSM?Thanks, jerry b <><

    Hey electrikn,
    Thanks for the question. If your iPhone 3GS has been updated to iOS 6, this setting had moved:
    Set network options: Go to Settings > General > Cellular

  • Checking for authorized computers

    I have 2 questions today:
    1) How can I check to see how many computers I have authorized to play my iTunes?
    2) I recently tried to move some of my music onto my wife's computer using a data disk. Everything transfered fine except for the songs that I purchased from the iTunes store - I sort of expected this. So how do I get those songs to play on her computer? She already has iTunes on her computer and I brought all of the music into HER iTunes - the protected AAC files being the exception. Should I somehow authorize her computer 1st and THEN bring the over the protected files?
    Thanks for any help!

    the songs I copied into my wife's iTunes should be on her computer with the rest of the other "unprotected" tracks
    Yes. In iTunes, File -> Add folder (or files)to iTunes library.
    it's just that I can't access it until I try to play the song and then authorize the computer.
    You can access it jst fine.,When you try tp play it. iTunes will tell you the computer is not authorized. Simply put in the your iTunes account and password to authorize the computer and the songs will play fine.

  • On my ATV home screen the menu tabs for Movies does not show nor does Netflix under the Internet tab, I have tried reset etc but nothing works

    I think I have a 1st gen ATV.  The other evening I got the ubiquitous "Error-HDCP content etc, try again" message.  When I logged back in later, the Movies tab was gone from the menu screen as was Netflix under the Internet tab.  I have tried reset, restore, unplugging etc and nothing works, any thoughts?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    If you had/have Netflix, you have the Apple TV 2.
    Check your iTunes Store location is set to the correct location.

  • TS4062 When I plug in my iPhone to my mac with iTunes open, there isn't a tab for my phone anymore.  It's not syncing my contacts, calendar, email - nothing but music.  Help!

    I have the "original" iphone, yes it's ancient, but it still works fine.  This is the first time I am having a problem.
    I've updated itunes and the phone so I have the latest versions of both. 
    I restarted my computer and turned the phone on and off.
    Any other suggestions??

    You need to download iTunes on your computer. iOS 6 requires the latest version of iTunes which is 10.7.

  • Is there a keyboard shortcut for the open tabs on other computers?

    I know that you can click the arrow on the right of the tab bar to access the tabs from other computers, but is there a keyboard shortcut for it, or another way to access it?

    And then, you can switch groups by CTRL+` (grave accent, since my kb is portuguese, I have to do CTRL+ SHIFT + ´) or CTRL+~ (tilde)

  • Is there a way to completely disable tabs (removing all tab related menu options) for firefox 10?

    Is there a way to completely disable tabs (removing all tab related menu options) for firefox 10. I hate tabs and recent changes to the menus make incorrect selection of 'open in new tab' when what I want is 'open in new window' a common and unwelcome occurrence.

    You can hide menu items and move them up / down in the menu with the Menu Editor extension. <br />

  • I want to transfer a movie I have downloaded from itunes to my new IPAD. I have been on the itunes help menu, it tells me to look under 'devices' tab for IPAD. BUT there is no 'devices' tab and it does not list my new IPAD. Help!

    I want to transfer a movie I have bought in itunes to my new IPAD. I have been trying to work how to do this for 3 days now. I have accessed all the itunes help and forums and wiki online. They all tell me to go to the DEVICES tab on itunes and select IPAD then sync. YUP seem simple, BUT there is not DEVICES tab listed on my itunes and it does not list IPAD. Years ago I set up my IPOD no problem and that is listed, but not the new IPAD. Can anyone help? I would love to be able to actually watch films on my IPAD!! thanks

    If you have iTunes 11 on your computer then you can enable the left-hand sidebar on it via option-command-S on a Mac, control-S on a PC - when connected (and if your computer's iTunes is up-to-date) your iPad should then appear on that sidebar under a 'Devices' heading :
    If you select the iPad on that sidebar you can then use the Movies tab on the right-hand side of the iTunes screen to select and sync that film to your iPad's Videos app.
    Has your iPad been synced to the computer before ? If not then you might find this page for syncing to a new computer useful :

  • ITunes for Windows freezes when importing a library. I have a large but not huge library of mostly iTunes purchased music on two authorized computers and would like to sync the files, export the library as a playlist, and import it on the other computer.

    I am running iTunes for Windows 10.2.2 on Windows 7 Home. I have my iTunes library on both this computer and another authorized machine running Windows 7 Professional. I have a large but not enormous library, as I'm one of those people who doesn't pirate, use torrents, borrow from a dozen friends, or whatever other shades of gray you might imagine. It's mostly iTunes purchases with my old CD collection imported. I have started using the following technique to sync my libraries between my two authorized computers, an ability which you can probably all agree should one day be added to iTunes -- that would be different from Home Sharing, because the music would be stored locally and thus available on the road. With the added benefit of the entire library being backed up on the other machine in real-time. Anyway, when I switch from my desktop to laptop and vice versa, I use the following technique:
    Connect both machines to the home network. One machine is the "Active" machine, which has most recently been used for iTunes media, purchases, ratings, etc.
    On the "Active" machine, File-->Library-->Export. Save the file as "Library.xml" on the shared drive of the other machine.
    Right-click "Library.xml" where it's been saved, and open another file that has two lines in it: The root path of the iTunes library on one machine and the root path of the iTunes library on the other machine.
    Do a find/replace all in Notepad to make the library XML file point to where the files will be saved on the "Inactive" machine.
    Run Microsoft SyncToy to synchronize the files between both music libraries; the most recent files win. This avoids copying the entire multi-gigabyte library over the network.
    Open iTunes on the "Inactive" machine.
    Go to Music, Select All, Delete. Keep files.
    Do the same for Movies, Music Videos.
    Go down to Playlists, select the top one, hold down the delete button until they're all gone.
    File-->Library-->Import Playlist. Choose the "Library.xml" file you saved.
    First a status bar comes up that says, "Importing library." It has the continually-scrolling progress bar, not the one that starts on the left and steadily creeps right. Then after about 30 seconds, that clears out. Wait. Typically a few minutes. Eventually a status bar will pop up saying something like, "Evaluating gapless playback information," or something like that.
    The "Inactive" computer is now the "Active" computer. I can now play my library, it has all my playlists and metadata from the other machine.
    Delete all the duplicate playlists named "Music," "Genius," "Purchased," and "iTunes DJ."
    Well, I just upgraded to iTunes 10.2.2 a few days ago and tried to do this again like I've done it dozens of times before. Now, iTunes just goes unresponsive after the library import. It got through the "Importing library" bar to the long wait and stopped. I can still multiprocess and use other programs, but iTunes is hovering back there not responding to clicks. Task Manager doesn't seem to think iTunes is using my CPU, and I don't see my hard drive rattling. Any thoughts on why iTunes might hang up when importing a large library?
    ... Also, please help lobby Apple to come up with a network sync tool built into iTunes for a user with multiple authorized computers. Something different than Home Sharing so I can pull my laptop off the network and still have the synced library with me. And all my metadata changes will sync. The technique I use seems a little kludgey, don't you think?

    iTunes isn't an editor. You need an app that's intended for editing audio files, like Adobe Audition ( or Audacity (free in the App Store).

  • I now have 5 devices that access the "cloud" via Match. I also have 3 computers that need to be authorized. Is there a way to authorize all these computers/devices in such a way to allow everything to access and sync to the cloud?

    I now have 5 devices that access the "cloud" via Match. I also have 3 computers that need to be authorized. Is there a way to authorize all these computers/devices in such a way to allow everything to access and sync to the cloud?

    I had a problem with a 5.0.3 project that would cause 5.0.4 to crash. Apple asked for a copy of the project and later told me it was because there were some empty text layers. Apple is aware of the issue and is working on a fix.
    In my case I still had 5.0.3 on another Mac and could clean up the project. If empty text layers might be the problem, do you know someone with an earlier version who could open it and remove the empty layers? I'd be willing to give it a try if you'd want to send me the project.

  • Missing Spry Menu Tab on CS5 using an iMac (only 2 computers cannot see it)

    I am using Dreamweaver CS5 on iMacs in my classroom. Two students are not able to see the blue Spry Menu Bar tab.  Is there something that needs to be selected in order for them to see it?  I thought maybe they missed a step so we followed our book and recreated the Menu Bar on another page.  Once the menu bar is complete and you click off, the blue Spry Menu Tab is not available.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    even if there are only two students with these problems, you should follow Ken's hint. One of my most important arguments: "Spry doesn't work correctly on touch screens!" Please try it, you will have a nasty surprise!
    And here I quote from different contributions of the forum:
    "Spry has been deprecated and is no longer officially supported by Adobe", “Adobe abandoned Spry late last year after CS6 came out. Future products will probably not contain any Spry so learning to use jQuery is a valuable skill to have for the future. We/I recommend you switch to a jQuery library for your further requirements."
    If you have a budget to work with, get PVII's Pop-Menu Magic2.

  • Software update tab does not do anything. Is there another way to check for updates?

    I"m trying to update my OS to 10.8.4 but when I click on Apple > software update, nothing happens. How do I fix this problem or is there another way to look for software updates? Thanks!

    Download and install 10.8.4 Mountain Lion Update v10.8.4 (Combo). Before you install be sure to do the following:
    Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions - Lion/Mountain Lion
    Boot to the Recovery HD:
    Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
    When the recovery menu appears select Disk Utility. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported then click on the Repair Permissions button. When the process is completed, then quit DU and return to the main menu. Select Restart from the Apple menu.
