In iTunes, under the Artists list (brought up by ctrl+b in Windows), I have an unwanted 'Compilations' artist. In it are several tracks where the part of a compilation box is checked when one goes to the get info --> info tab. I can go through individually and uncheck this, but when I select multiple items at the same time, this box doesn't appear in the info tab anymore.

Is there a quick way to uncheck this box for multiple items?

Does my answer below work for you? – anon173 Apr 25 '12 at 2:05

Yes. Select all of the items and press cmd + I. iTunes will ask you if you want to edit info for multiple items. Select yes, then select the options tab. There should be a dropdown menu on the right if the words "Part of a Conpilation." Select yes, and then click apply, and you should be all set!

On Windows in iTunes for multiple selections its on the Options tab (not the Info tab like it is for single selections) – Bae Jun 23 '14 at 12:02
