How to Access an iTunes Account on My New Computer

iTunes is one of the most popular digital music stores and music managers. Your iTunes account is the key to your Apple identity: it quickly connects you to your iTunes and Ping profile, and allows you to re-download iPhone, iPod and iPad apps. You don't need to sign up for a new account with a new computer, just download iTunes and sign in. Any music and video you purchased from iTunes on another computer will not automatically appear on your new computer, however; you need to back it up and copy it to your new hard drive to listen to it.
