Hi Guys,
Recently, I downloaded from the AppStore a copy of a free XXXX. Today, I purchased MS Office 365 Personal, from Microsoft.
Both these apps appear in Applications and the Dock but there is no record of me ever receiving them.
Shouldn't they show up in the Downloads folder ?
Neither app. has a footprint history, is something wrong or is this the new 'system?

Hello,

When you purchase apps from the App Store, they install automatically. They don't give you an installer or a disk image like apps purchased directly from a software company. The should be in the Launchpad...they may be on another page.

They do remain in the Purchased section of the App Store, so you can reinstall them, or install them using your Apple ID and the App Store app on other Macs you may own.

Hope that helps,

C
