How to Delete a Song From an iPod Shuffle
Although iPod Shuffles feature a completely random song mix, you may find yourself continuously hearing a certain song, or discovering a song you don't like while listening to the device's random cycles. Deleting a song from the iPod Shuffle is a fairly easy process, and will allow you to get rid of any songs you don't want.
Things You'll Need
- iTunes software
Open iTunes and then plug in your iPod Shuffle. You will see a small icon appear in the iTunes' left pane that resembles your iPod. Click on it.
Select the song that you wish to delete. Select multiple songs by holding down the CTRL key while selecting the individual songs.
Right-click the mouse button and select "remove from iPod" from the sub-menu. This will remove these songs from your device, but they will stay on your computer.
Press the orange eject button next to your iPod shuffle icon, then disconnect your device.
Tips & Warnings
- If you want to delete a song from your computer as well, all you have to do is select it in iTunes, right-click it, and then select "delete" from the sub-menu. This will get rid of the file completely.
