If you have a large library of MP3s or other audio files, or you’re interested in listening to Apple Music or podcasts via the iTunes store on your Windows computer, you’ll probably want to download iTunes.

iTunes has been around since 2003. While many consumers have a love-hate relationship with the app (and though Apple has discontinued the program on macOS Catalina in favor of separate apps for Music, Podcasts, and TV), it’s still one of the best out there for PC-based audiophiles.

If you don’t have iTunes yet but think it might come in handy, you’ll need to download it on your computer. Thankfully, doing so is easy, and while the program might take several minutes to download, it’s a straightforward process and you should be up and running quickly.

Here’s how to download iTunes on your Windows PC.
