App Store Purchases and Updates

Besides helping you find new apps to install, the Mac App Store also has screens that show you your past purchases and lots of information about app updates. On the purchases screen you can re-download apps you have purchased in the past or on another Mac. On the Updates screen you can read detailed information about updates and decide when to install them.

    Is it possible to download the list of Purchases? I’d like to be able to sort by Name or Installed/Not Installed etc. Thanks.

    Perhaps not germane, but I hope that Apple will begin paying some attention to UI for older folks. The Mac App Store is one of the worst offenders, using tiny type, in gray, which is hard to read, cannot be zoomed or made larger by option.

      Have you tried changing the resolution of your screen? Most new Macs use a retina display which looks good at various resolutions, keeping text sharp. If you have trouble reading text, start by making the screen resolution more comfortable for you. If that doesn’t work, then try some of the options in System Preferences, Accessibility, Display and Zoom categories.
