Ok I'm being lazy. laughing2.gif

I checked out the apple support page and it talked about setting up sharing etc.

Maybe I haven't consumed enough caffeine this morning, but my eyes started to glaze over and the information wasn't able to penetrate by feeble brain.

Once I have it set up, I will be passing on my computer to my MIL who doesn't need iTunes, so I just want to transfer the lot over (no music only videos and apps) for my phone.

Can anyone give me a quick run down on how to do it?  Pretty please original.gif

I've always just plugged my device into the new computer and followed the prompts. Then I go back to my old computer click on itunes, go to 'store' and deactivate that computer. Your account will disappear from your old computer and it will be on your new one.

I just installed Itunes on my new macbook, then Itunes asked me whether or not I wished to download all my previous purchases.
