How to download your music purchased on iTunes Store to a new computer

If you’ve built your personal music library by buying songs from iTunes Store over the years and you’d like to listen to it on your brand new Mac or Windows PC, you can do that without having to transfer your entire iTunes music library to the new computer.

iTunes gives you two choices: you can A) download all your music purchases in bulk; and B) selectively redownload particular items only.

In this tutorial, we’re going to explain both ways in which your previously purchased iTunes songs, albums and music videos can be transferred to another computer to be enjoyed offline.

macOS 10.12.4 properly displays icons for Windows executable files in Finder

Yesterday’s beta release of what would become the fourth major software update to macOS Sierra doesn’t just bring iOS’s Night Shift mode to your Mac.
