How to Delete Unwanted Genres in iTunes 12

I have a whole bunch of genres that I don't ever want to see again in my Genre dropdown list. You used to be able to delete them from previous versions of iTunes but I can't figure it out in iTunes 12. Any ideas?

Usually it is updating the genres in your library to eliminate the ones you don't want.

Using Song view, sort by Genre by clicking the Genre column header
When you see a Genre you don't like, select the track(s)
Right click the selection and choose Get Info
Change the Genre to one you like
Click OK

I haven't seen any other way to reduce the Genres. The defaults are always there.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
