How to delete all songs in your iTunes music library
When you delete an item in iTunes, it doesn’t get deleted – instead, the item is hidden in the “iTunes Media folder,” where it remains until you decide to permanently remove
it from your library. If you think that simply moving the songs to another folder or drive will make them disappear: think again!
Moving a song to another folder on your computer doesn’t make it disappear completely – all songs remain listed in the “Music Library” tab of iTunes, even if they have been moved to other drives or folders and are no longer visible under the “Songs” tab. There’s only one way to get rid of those invisible songs – and its permanent. Here’s how to do it.
Create a new folder on your desktop (and label it “iTunes Junk”). Make sure your iTunes program is closed, then drag all of the songs you want to delete into that folder. Open iTunes, click on “File,” then click “Library” and choose “Organize Library.” Click the checkbox next to “Consolidate Files” and hit OK when prompted. This will permanently remove those songs from your library – they’re gone for good! If you have other content in your media folders that isn’t music, repeat these steps using “Consolidate Files and Folders instead of “Consolidate Media.”
A message will appear letting you know that this process may take a long time. While iTunes is busy remembering where it’s put all your files and getting rid of any duplicates, go ahead and have dinner or something. Once the file consolidation process is finished, an alert box will display asking you to confirm the deletion of any remaining files in your library (step 4) – make sure you hit OK!
You may also want to go into the settings and drag your media folder to a different location. This will ensure all of your other music is moved there as well, instead of moving it in just one direction. 🙂 Finally, save all of your files somewhere else – for example, on an external drive or hard-drive – so you don’t accidentally delete them again! If you created a new folder to hold all of the songs you deleted, feel free to delete it: there’s no need to keep a bunch of empty folders around!

When you uninstall iTunes, you will not lose any of your music from the My Music folder since your library is only stored in there. However, I recommend copying your iTunes library to a separate folder for safekeeping.
Songs added to your iTunes library from folders on your computer delete if the song was purchased and downloaded.
