Removing the Vertical Buttons from iTunes 10

One of the first things I noticed about iTunes 10 was those ridiculously awful vertical buttons. Seriously, what were they thinking? And as a fellow developer pointed out, that even violates Apples own Human Interface Guidelines… Not to mention it’s a crime against humanity.

Someone much craftier than I figured out that all you need to do to restore those buttons back to their horizontial counterparts is open up a Terminal window and enter the following:

defaults write full-window -1

Press Enter, close Terminal and restart or open iTunes. You should see things are now back to normal.
