Disabling genre in iTunes

I find the genre tab in the iTunes browser useless so I don’t use it. There was a setting in preferences to prevent it being displayed. But after updating to the latest version of iTunes I found that the genre tab is showing up again in the browser and there is way of disabling it in the iTunes preferences.

As usual, the command line comes to the rescue. Enter the command below and restart iTunes.

  defaults write com.apple.itunes show-genre-when-browsing -bool FALSE
