Question: How can I download my entire photo stream?

I have an iPhone 6 and a macbook pro, and only recently enabled photo stream auto-downloading (of all pictures in the last month) on my macbook, but have had photo stream enabled on my iPhone since 2016. There are 800 photos that I can see in the photo stream on my phone, but only the past month's photos have downloaded to my macbook - how do I get the older photos that are saved in the photo stream downloaded to my laptop?

MacBook Pro with Retina display, macOS High Sierra (10.13.3)

You can not - that is how MyPhotoStream works

How to use My Photo Stream - Apple Support

With My Photo Stream, you can access recent photos that you took with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, or that you uploaded from your Mac or PC.

My Photo Stream uploads your most recent photos (except Live Photos) so that you can view and import them to all of your devices. Photos are stored in My Photo Stream for 30 days. iCloud Photo Library uploads all of your photos and videos to iCloud and keeps them up to date across your devices.
