How to Remove Ping Drop-Down on iTunes 10 (Mac Only)

As you may already know, when ┬áiTunes 10.0.1 update came out, it brought along the Ping drop-down on each individual song. If you’re not a fan of Ping like myself, here is an easy way to remove it on a Mac.

Remove iTunes 10 Ping Drop-Down Menu

There are two parts of Ping: the Ping sidebar can be removed with a click, but the drop-down menu needs a quick trip to the Mac OS terminal:

  1. Quit iTunes. Open Terminal (Mac only).
  2. Copy this line (in one line), and hit enter: defaults write hide-ping-dropdown -bool TRUE
  3. You might need to authenticate. When you open iTunes 10.0.1, the Ping drop-down menu will be gone.

Repeat the command with FALSE instead of TRUE at the end, if you want to bring it back.
