Stop podcasts from appearing in iTunes Library

Like many people, I was annoyed to find out that with iTunes 5 (and now 6) puts podcasts in your music library, which doesn’t make much sense.

Well I found a way around it, which is so simple I never thought of it till now.

  1. Open your “Library” in iTunes
  2. Go to the “Edit” Menu
  3. Click on “Show Search Bar”
  4. On the search bar, click “Music”
  5. There you go, no more podcasts in your library!

The cool thing is, iTunes remembers what item you have open on your search bar. So you can close iTunes and not have to worry about clicking that music button every single time.

So simple that it was too obvious.
