MacOS – iTunes 12.5+ plist setting for View As -> Songs by default

itunesmacos

I find the the default view of songs to "Songs" too white and it's irritating / abominable to view Playlist that way. It does't show enough details for my taste so I'd rather see something else than the current default view (Playlist):
playlist view

Instead, I would like to see content directly as the Songs view instead:
songs view

Does anyone know of a plist setting (in com.apple.iTunes.plist) to change the default view of songs to "Songs" instead of the Playlist setting?

  • Another useful option is to set up a keyboard shortcut through System Preferences (⌘S is available).

    Since the menu item "Songs" is used in multiple places, you have to use the full menu path when setting up the shortcut: View->View As->Songs
