Automatically Add Items from Other Apps

Automatically adding items to your iTunes is an easy way to populate your iTunes library without consuming large amounts of time.

In order to automatically add items to your iTunes, you must use your PC (Windows 8 PC is used in this tutorial for demonstration) to copy the items, and paste them in the ‘Automatically Add to iTunes’ folder. As soon as you do so, the items would be automatically added to the iTunes, and it will be easy to sync your Apple device with the application from there.

Here is how you can automatically add items to iTunes:

    ■Log on to your Windows PC. (Windows 8 in this demonstration.)
    ■From the Start screen, click the Desktop tile.

    ■On the desktop screen, locate and right-click the desired item that you wish to add automatically to the iTunes library. (.M4R music file in this demonstration.)
    Note: The item can be your edited video or music file that you wish to add to the iTunes Library.
    ■From the context menu, click Copy to copy the file.

    ■Once the file is copied, click the File Explorer icon from the task bar at the bottom.
    ■On the opened This PC window, click to expand the This PC tree from the navigation pane in the left.
    ■From the expanded options, click to select the Music container.

    ■Once the Music window comes up, go to the iTunes > iTunes Media > Automatically Add to iTunes folder.
    ■Once there, right-click anywhere and from the context menu, click Paste to paste the desired file in the folder.

    ■After this, the file will be automatically added to your iTunes library, and you can access it from within iTunes.
