Next, decide from where you are going to download your music (see options below). Go to the music site, search for the song you want and click on it. The download will begin and the file transfer screen will pop up, telling you about how long it will take and where it is going.

When the process is completed, make sure the file went where you wanted it to go – "Jane's Music" folder. It's a good idea, especially if you did not get it from a quality site, to play it right away. You want to make sure the download is not poor quality or that the file is not corrupted.

Most sites allow you to do multiple downloads of music at one time. If you have a dialup connection, you might not want to have more than three or four downloads going at once, as the time will be much slower. The song that you last downloaded will be at the top. After your download, you can sort your music library according to how you want it listed.

Now that you know how to organize and access your music library, you're ready to search for your favorite songs. Have fun and
