Selecting songs to shuffle

Question : I often set my iTunes program to shuffle all the songs, but find it jarring when Christmas music pops into the mix. Is there a way to make iTunes skip these holiday albums when it randomly shuffles my music?

Answer : The Christmas season starts earlier every year, but hearing Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer in October is even more jarring than hearing it in December.

But there's a way to block tracks you don't want to hear in the random-shuffle rotation.

Recent versions of iTunes include a "skip when shuffling" setting that you can turn on for individual tracks or whole albums within your music library.

To take an individual track out of the shuffle mode, click on its name in your iTunes library window, go to the File menu and select Get Info. Click the Options tab in the box and put a check mark in the box next to "Skip when shuffling."

Click on the OK button to close the Info box.

If you want to put an entire album or genre on the bench, click on its name in the iTunes browser window. Go to the iTunes File menu, select "Get Info" and click "Yes" in the box when iTunes asks if you want to edit information for multiple items. Go to the bottom of the Multiple Item Information box to "Skip When Shuffling." put a check next to it and choose "Yes" or "No" from the drop-down menu. Click OK.
