In my MacBook, running El Capitan 10.11.6 with iTunes I'm right clicking on the sound file inside iTunes in order to convert it from an AIFF to a MP3 — I do not see either of the options “Create MP3 Version” or “Convert Selection to MP3,” even after restarting iTunes.

How can I convert the file?

  • Hold option key and File > Convert > Convert to MP3? Anything? Aug 7, 2016 at 22:39

Hold option while selecting the file(s), and then go to File > Convert > Convert to MP3. You should see the option there.
