How can I access my itunes account through my new computer

Your account is just a user name and password.  Just sign into your account and use it as you like.
Are you asking about your library (music and other content)?
It will only be where you put it.  Have you copied it from your old computer to your new one?  If not, then do that.

    I am a bit of a computer/Internet/iTunes dummy....
    I am concerned about the health of my current computer but have not yet made the commitment to a new one, but:
    1) How can I transfer my iTunes account to a new computer when I get one...
    and
    2) What can I do if my current computer suddenly implodes and I have not yet 'copied/'saved'/otherwise protected my account, as is? -- I have already had my computer crash once and had one of your people help me restore all of the paid for songs (none of the uploaded from my own collection of CD songs, of course, so I had to spend a long time rebuilding that) -- and I believe I was told you could only help me recover that material one or two times altogether, no?
    WithOUT purchasing a Mach or iCloud (I actually think I have one of the later, but rarely have checked it) account, is there anything I can do to responsibly protect my account?
    Thanks for any time taken on this!!!

    These are two possible approaches that will normally work to move an existing library to a new computer.
    Method 1
    Backup the library with this User Tip.
    Deauthorize the old computer if you no longer want to access protected content on it.
    Restore the backup to your new computer using the same tool used to back it up.
    Keep your backup up-to-date in future.
    Method 2
    Connect the two computers to the same network. Share your <User's Music> folder from the old computer and copy the entire iTunes library folder into the <User's Music> folder on the new one. Again, deauthorize the old computer if no longer required.
    Both methods should give the new computer a working clone of the library that was on the old one. As far as iTunes is concerned this is still the "home" library for your devices so you shouldn't have any issues with iTunes wanting to erase and reload.
    I'd recommend method 1 since it establishes an ongoing backup for your library.
    Note if you have iOS devices and haven't moved your contacts and calendar items across then you should create one dummy entry of each in your new profile and iTunes should  merge the existing data from the device.
    If your media folder has been split out from the main iTunes folder you may need to do some preparatory work to make it easier to move. See make a split library portable.
    Should you be in the unfortunate position where you are no longer able to access your original library or a backup then then see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device for advice on how to set up your devices with a new library with the maximum preservation of data.

  • HT1203 How can I access my itunes account from a different computer as I need to cancel a subscription and I am on holiday at the moment

    Hello
    I need to access my itunes account from a different computer as I need to cancel a subscription and I am on holiday at the moment.
    Am I already now logged in to Apple ??
    Thanks

    If the Computor you are on has iTunes library go to tunes as if u were going to buy a song or film and you can log into your account. At the bottom of the iTunes home page you should see the user that is logged on usually a email address. Click on it to log them out and enter your own apple I'd and password. You can then update whatever you want and log back out after

  • How can I have another Itunes account on the same computer for my wife?

    How can I have another Itunes account on the same computer for my wife?

    In case you didn't fully understand what dallon meant, it means another user account on your computer. You set that up in Windows and then instal iTunes onto that account.
    That way, you each have your own desktop and your own itunes. You can link to the songs in the other person's library as well, but you cannot run both iTunes at the same time. (That simply means you need to close it on the first account before opening it on the second account.)

  • How do I open my itunes account on a new computer without having to buy all new songs? It doesn't seem fair to have to buy all the same songs a second time if they are already purchased by me and I just want them on my new computer!

  • How can I access my iTunes account from my iPhone.

    1- I can't access my iTunes account from my iPhone.
    Do I have to sync them or can I download the songs I bought without connecting with my macbook?
    Last time i connected the two, all my music got deleted. Must have done something wrong, but have no idea how to prevent that from happening again.
    2- My "preferences" panel in iTunes, only shows apps and books, not music- Why?
    3- I can't save any music on iClod.

    hello. 
    i followed your link on how to delete content from all things Apple, and nothing removes books, movies, music... it just gives said device(s) the iCloud/download icon on top of the book, movie...  not sure what the 'hide' purchase actually does - after X'ing/hide, everything STILL appears across all devices using that account.  could you clarify this any further?
    if i am understanding iTunes correctly, then EVERYTHING we download (free or purchased) will be FOREVER accessible with zero way for us to control what is filling up this mysterious vault called the cloud?  (creepy- apple is keeping EVERYTHING, what happens when the cloud gets full?)
    since we have iCloud.com and it shows our "stuff" that we iCloud sync from our devices such as notes, contacts, calendar... then why doesn't apple provide an iCloud.com tab that shows ALL of our purchases so we as CONSUMERS control/delete what is in our account? 
    we download ALOT of apps to try and then delete them off our devices.  that works fine, but movies and books are always there.  maybe a glitch?

  • How can I access my itunes account, old computer crashed?

    My computer has crashed and have recently purchased a new one, all my movies, books, music was on the account on this computer, how can I access it again?
    I have all my downloads, movies, books, music, so how can I acces that itunes account if my computer has crashed and now have a new computer?

    The easiest way to get back missing items?  Restore your whole hard drive with all your irreplaceable things like photos in about 20 minutes from the backup clone you make on a regular basis.
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store - http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2519 - enabled with iTunes 10.3 and newer; not available in all countries; only apps, books (not audiobooks), music, and t.v. shows (not movies).  Discontinued items not available. For items not included in the iCloud list, or locations or computer systems where iCloud is not (yet?) available, you only get one download per fee paid.  Apple notes it is your responsibility to back up your purchases.
    I am a bit confused by your use of the word "account".  You may have an "account" on the iTunes Store.  What you have on a computer is your user account, part of which is the iTunes folder which usually houses a collection of files that make up what you see when you open the iTunes application.  When you open iTunes it does not normally open an account to your files, it just opens the ones on your computer. If your old computer died and you can not longer use the hard drive (which is not necessarily true but we would have to know more about the situation in detail) then not only your media but your playlists, ratings, etc. are also gone (unless you have a backup).  As indicated above, iTunes Store will let you download some things again, if they are still there and you are running iTunes 10.3 or greater.  Things like movies are gone unless you have a backup copy elsewhere.  The iTunes store does not contain playlists, etc, nor your ratings since all you are doing is downloading brand new copies again.
