Consolidating songs on itunes into one album
The i Cloud Download status icon (shaped like a cloud) shows you whether those songs are downloaded locally to your Mac or not; if not, you'll see a cloud with a downward arrow.
You can download tracks one-by-one by clicking on the cloud icon, or by selecting multiple songs and control-clicking on them, then selecting Download.
However, it may be your best choice if you are gathering music files from a diverse number of places and even formats, and moving as many as you can to one i Tunes account.
This is also one of the best options if you are transferring from PC to PC or from Mac to PC, where Migration Assistant can’t help you out.
