Where, oh where, did my download go?

Apple was nice enough to put a debug menu in the OS/X App Store.  To enable this menu,  launch terminal and enter the following command:

defaults write com.apple.appstore ShowDebugMenu -bool true

Restart the App Store and you get the following:

App Store Debug Menu

I’m not sure how useful rest of the menu will be, but the second item is a little gem entitled “Show download folder”; I really learned to appreciate this when my Xcode 4.1 download failed and I had to delete the incomplete download before re-trying.

In case your wondering, after upgrading to Lion, my download directory was:

/private/var/folders/vl/1k3h6k9s1g1gnkpkn1579mm40000gn/C
