The Apple publicity says ...
On a computer, any songs stored in iCloud will stream over the air when played, though you can download them at any time by clicking the iCloud download button. iOS devices will start playing tracks from iCloud as they download and will store them so that you can listen to them later even if you don’t have a network connection. Apple TV only streams songs.

I have loaded my entire iTunes library on my IMac to iCloud with iTunes Match. (successfully completed)


Now I want to download (not stream) the entire iTunes Match library (including iTunes non-purchased music) in the iCloud back to my IMac iTunes library (to benefit amongst other things to better bit rate recordings) but cannot find the "the iCloud download button" on  iTunes on the iMac.


What have I not understood in this process ?


Can somebody tell me how to download the iCloud music to iTunes on an iMac ?


many thanks



iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
