Here’s a quick and simple Thursday hint. If you’re downloading a ton of stuff from the iTunes Store—perhaps your long-lost great aunt just gave you a $500 iTunes gift card—did you know you can reorder your queued downloads? You can’t change an active download, but just drag-and-drop to rearrange the queued downloads. You can use the Shift and Command keys to select more than one download, too. Now you can get the music or movies you want the most sooner rather than later.

Note that if you move a queued download above an in-progress download, it will not start until the in-progress download finishes. If you want to have that happen, you’ll have to manually pause the in-progress download, and then start the one you dragged into the higher position.
