5 - The program will download the data, sometimes giving you more than one result. You can cycle through these by using the top navigation arrows.

6 - You can edit any data you have received.

7 - Be sure to save your changes before you quit.

Be aware that in order to download data and cover art, an active internet connection needs to be available. Music Tag can only save one track if you haven't activated it. Once you purchase and activate Music Tag, there is no limit on the number of tracks that can be tagged.

Tips: If a track has been scanned, but has no data, a message will appear at the top indicating the fact. You can attempt to get better results by providing some more data, namely Artist name, Track name and Album, if you know them.
