3. In the lower-right corner of the window, click Download Previous Purchases.

4. The Purchased page will appear.

5. Select Music, Apps, or Books to find the desired items you wish to download.

6. A list of previously purchased items will appear. To narrow the list down, select the Not in My Library button in the upper-right corner of the page.

7. Find the desired item and click the corresponding icon.

8. The item will be downloaded to your computer.
