Click 'Install' to start the installation.

After the installation is complete, click 'Finish'. You can now use iTunes.

When you start iTunes and play music or check the music in the store ...

The CPU utilization rate has exceeded 20% with iTunes alone.

Even if the operation is only playing music, it keeps about 10%. Certainly, in a normal Windows environment, it is unavoidable to say that 'iTunes uses too much CPU'.

When I play the music I searched for in the 'store' ...

At the beginning of playing music, iTunes CPU utilization sometimes rose to nearly 20%, but ...

Immediately the CPU utilization rate drops and keeps stable at 3% or less. Even if the CPU utilization rate rises temporarily, I was able to realize the effect of 'iTunes CPU Redux' in the form of a drop immediately.

Looking into what iTunes CPU Redux is doing, it seems that iTunes automatically turns off the options that cause it to increase CPU utilization. Although it is an operation that can be done manually, it takes time to check 'Is it okay to turn this off?', So it is certain that it is easy to set it all at once with such free software.
