Does the AppStore not provide download / installation status?

enter image description here

I clicked on get app, and all I see is "installing". No status, no feedback, nothing. Is this normal? I know Xcode is a big download, so I know it will take a while, but feedback would be nice.


From Check Download Progress on the Mac App Store:

How to See Download Progress of Apps Coming from the Mac App Store

Want a general idea of an app downloads progress? Here’s what to do:

  • From the Mac App Store, click on the “Purchases” tab to see the active list
  • Locate the app(s) you are downloading that you want to check

Also if Launchpad is in your Dock it typically shows some information too.
