[Tidal Desktop Offline] Listen to Tidal Offline on Mac/Windows

Q: Where is the Tidal offline mode in the Tidal desktop app for Windows and Mac computers? I switched to Tidal from Spotify because of its MQA quality. But I couldn't find the Tidal desktop offline, even the 'Download' option. I prefer to listen to music offline, especially for high-quality songs. Is there something I'm missing?

Music playback of MQA quality needs more stable networking than the ones of normal quality. In fact, Tidal does have a Offline Mode. But you can only find it and use Tidal offline on mobile devices. For the listeners using a Tidal desktop app, it's a pity. There is no built-in function to listen to Tidal offline.

Fortunately, there is still a practical way to get a Tidal offline on PC and Mac desktop computers. If you are interested in this topic for a long time, please scroll down to read the solution below.
