Tips & Warnings

  • Choose any individual title you wish to delete by clicking on it once, then right-clicking the title and selecting "Delete." You can also hold the "Control" key as you select multiple titles, or the "Shift" key to select consecutive blocks of titles.
  • If this is your first time deleting from your purchase history, iTunes may send you a pop-up message letting you know that the title is still in your library. This is a good thing. Simply click "OK."
