When Google Music came out of beta and was released to everyone (US only) one of the new features added was a download button.  When you purchase music from the Android music store the songs are automatically added to your Google Music locker.  That’s great, but most of us want to have a local copy of the music we own, in addition to having it available in the cloud so that your music is accessible from everywhere.

Google Music Manager for Windows has to first be installed, but if you have joined Google Music then you probably already done that.  If not, then head over to music.google.com.  The Music Manager will appear in your system tray.  To open it just give it the old double-click.

Click on the Download tab.  You’ll find an option to “Download purchased music” and under that a box you can check if you want to only download music you have purchased since your last Google Music download (if this is the first time you have downloaded your music you won’t see this option).

Click the “Download purchased music” button.  You will get the option tp choose where you would like to download your music to.  Choose a folder and then click “OK”.

Your download will begin automatically.  A bar will show your progress.

Now all Google Music needs to add is a way to download the rest of the music you have stored there.  Once it acts more like cloud backup instead of just cloud streaming it will be the perfect music service.  It’s already darn close to that.
