My thread title was supposed to start with the word 'How'.

I accidentally clicked on Mountain Lion in the Mac App Store, and since I already had it, I tried to cancel the download. The only option I got was to pause it. Now, in the Launchpad, I see the icon for ML with a translucent progress bar on it, saying 'Paused'. Plus, my Launchpad icon in the dock shows the translucent bar as well. How can I get rid of this? I can't find the download anywhere to delete it, other than in the Launchpad.

I would say let it fully download (it wouldn't hurt if you've already paid for it) and delete the file after its done. I don't know of any other way to delete it. Kinda the same with iOS apps...
