How to View and Manage Your App Store Purchases on a Mac
The App Store is a one-stop shop for most of the apps you may need on your Mac. Sometimes these apps are free, and other times, you may have to pay a sum before downloading them.
If you have ever wondered how to keep track of every app you've downloaded and manage the App Store purchases on your Mac, here's a guide to help you out. So, let's get started.
How to View App Store Purchases on Your Mac Purchasing an app from the App Store is something many of us often do as Mac users. But not many are aware they can track these
