Can I download Anki cards from AnkiWeb?

I got a new computer and like a silly human I didn’t save the backup library file that apparently auto-saved on my desktop before I got my old laptop wiped and traded it in. I got a new phone too and the phone had no issues when I downloaded Anki pulling in my old library. I downloaded the app onto my desktop and it is an empty screen, no option to log in to my AnkiWeb account, and no decks or cards showing at all. My decks and cards are all backed up to AnkiWeb. Is there a way to download all my decks/cards from AnkiWeb to the desktop app?

Click the Sync button on the main screen.
