My installation of iTunes 12 would not remember my window size or position, and a splash screen would flash when the app was launching. I tried everything and could not get it to work correctly. Apple won't allow you to remove iTunes as the OS requires it, so I was left floundering. I found the fix by accident. 1. Go to Preferences Store2. ...

I love Apple and its products. I have so many Apple products at this point my apartment looks like the Apple Store.
