How to Change the Font-size in iTunes 12 (Of the Playlist)

Apple changed a lot of things in iTunes 12, interface being one of them. There’s a slightly major revamp to the UI of iTunes, making it flatter and minimalistic, in keeping with the overall theme of OS X Yosemite.

A consequence of this is an apparent change in the way the playlists look where you get to see slightly larger fonts instead of the old, smaller ones. This results in a well-spaced-out view but if you’re used to seeing a lot of songs without scrolling, this might no longer be possible. Fortunately, you can change the font-size in iTunes 12 (font-size of the playlist window/view).

On Windows, there’s an additional option. You can reduce the font-size in the sidebar (Playlist) too. To do this, select Small from the drop-down next to Playlist Icon Size.

I am not exactly sure why the Playlist Icon Size option is not available for Mac.

It’s not probably the case where you want to reduce the font-size. Maybe the resolution is too high on your Retina Mac and you want to increase the size. In this case, you’ll select “Large.” Once you do this, you should notice that the playlist now lists less number of songs but the font-size is larger.

You’ll probably notice this too. When you change the font-size, not only is the font-size affected, but the padding around the list items is changed too.

That’s it!
