Ok, I figured out a way to keep track of these wayward windows. I have built in 
a lot of stuff so far. It works so smooth with all these shortcuts. I can move 
lightning fast through things and getting info like artist album track 
currently playing, timecode, status of tracks, quick search, quickly shift from 
the sidebar sources to the track lists by just hitting enter. Also, you can 
jump to the sidebar sources area and move directly to the top of the list of 
objects. Also, you can access the library  directly, but this feature kinda 
seems redundant since you can quickly switch to the sidebar and just hit enter 
to pop into the library. I am working on the fast forward thing to make it 
simple to do. Now is the time when I need your input on how you want to 
navigate this application.  The coding is going very quickly and I should start 
focusing on the store portion and connecting devices to work with like an 
iTouch etc..
Also I am wondering if it would be helpful to say how many tracks were found 
after a search. You can quickly jump to the search box, type something and hit 
enter, then it pops you right into the library instead of using F6. I really 
didn't like that key as it was a time waster. 
What would be helpful is if you tabbed through iTunes from the source area to 
see what buttons and info you want quick access to. This is a matter of 
preference but I'll try to accomodate the best ideas.
