If you can't download it on your computer because it is too new, one option is to find an older computer and download it there after signing into the App Store using your Apple ID.


Check to make sure your applications are compatible.

Also check to make sure there is a compatible driver for your printer.


Do a backup before installing, preferable 2 backups on 2 different drives.
