    I downloaded and installed Yosemite last night but when I go to my app store instead of seeing "downloaded" I see "download" still, Is this normal? I checked under "About this mac" and it says I have Yosemite version 10.10 installed and when I click "download" in the app store it says "OS X v10.10 is already installed on this computer. Use the Updates page to install the 10.10 update or if you would like to download the full OS X installer click Continue."
    Could anyone tell me if this is normal or is something wrong?

    Yeah this is normal App Store behavior with OS installers. If you want to download the installer again, go to the Purchased tab and look for it. It'll let you download after a prompt.

    But what will happen if I download it again if I already have yosemite installed? If I click download again while it is installed already won't that cause problems?

    No I don't have a developer/beta version.

    This is normal. It's so you can download it again if you wish.

    So do you guys all have this as well? Does it say "download" yosemite under purchases for you guys? is it just for the people who had beta installed or what? I didn't have Yosemite beta installed but it seems like this is happening to people that did have beta installed, so did you guys have beta installed?

    I have it downloaded and installed on 2 iMacs, and I see the option to re-download it.

    Not sure why this is an issue to you, doesn't seem to be bothering anyone else. :eek:

    Once again, this is normal. Everybody has this. It is so you can re-download the OS again if you wish to.

    What I find odd with the App store is, I have Mavericks downloaded through it and stored on two hard drives. Yet it's not even listed under Purchases. Where Lion and Mountain Lion is listed.

    It is not. Had to go through the secure account setting to check.

    No. Just the one account and the only account.
