Btw I have tc itunes This book, which is about the new versions of Photos that Apple released in September , covers Photos for macOS version 3.
Jason Snell has been writing about Apple since it was doomed—, to be exact—and was the lead editor for Macworld for more than a decade.
He currently writes about technology at sixcolors. December 11, -- We're happy to have released this title with High Sierra and iOS 11 coverage, and are hoping that it won't need an update for a while.
ISBN: Version: 1. All you need to do is download the song you are trying to edit, then view it in the downloaded menu. It should allow you to edit.
Was also quite frustrated at this, the fix that worked for me was actually quite simple. I had Windows Media Player playing the song I was trying to edit, how dumb of me.
All I had to do was to close Windows Media Player or any other program that might be playing the song in any way. If the attribute is not there or the line is grayed out, then just go to the security tab and make sure you give yourself full control over the folder. Hope that helped! Since much of my music is ripped from CDs rather than downloaded, this is a huge problem.
In order for my playlists to work the way I want them I need to be able to change the genres. Both of those options had to be off. If I re-enabled one of them, I could no longer edit song info. Hope this helps someone. It seems with every new update from iTunes, something new goes wrong.
So tired of this every time this happens. Now I cannot edit songs or make any changes at all. I have followed all of the above steps, and even tried it all a 2nd time, to no avail.
Going to look for new software to use, done with itunes at this point. This is driving me nuts.
Thanks for providing the info, Mitch. Sadly, none of this works for me. I followed all of the steps multiple times and also took the advice of commenters. Is it possibly the issue that my music files are on an external hard drive? After searching around in frustration, I found this page and it finally fixed the problem. I still dislike the new iTunes, though.

Early iTunes was so much better. Fix it. I do not let iTunes organize folders as you have no control over the folder layout and quite frankly it makes a mess of things. It is contrary to the way everything else organizes it and if you use other players, the organization it uses does not play nice. In Album view, it works fine.
I think just possibly what some people are missing here is a very simple but admittedly easily overlooked thing: namely, that a song or album must actually be downloaded to your computer in order to be allowed to be edited. Hope this helps. Same problem here on Mac book pro. Was able to change the permissions in name only. It says i can read and write now but still am not able to make any changes at all.
