How to Access an iTunes Account From Another Computer

By Mario Calhoun

Your iTunes account allows you to purchase music, videos, and other types of media directly from the iTunes Store, and can be accessed from a number of devices, including your iPhone. In order to access your iTunes account from another computer, you must enter your account information into the Sign In page of the iTunes program. Once signed in, you can authorize the computer to play media purchased from the iTunes Store and set up other iTunes-exclusive features, including Home Sharing.
