Anki forcing new download version each time open

I have a MacBook Air. Every time I open the Anki app for the last 2 weeks it makes me download the newest version and I have to wait for it to download even though I downloaded the new version the previous day. Any ideas on how to solve this issue so I do not need to re-download Anki every day that I use it?

That sounds like you’re opening the old version each time - perhaps you have it sitting somewhere else on your computer. Please drag the new version into the Applications folder and make sure you run it from there.
