The Creative Cloud desktop app can keep your apps updated automatically as soon as new versions are released. You can also control auto-updates for individual apps. Previous versions are uninstalled by default but you can opt to keep them using the Advanced options.
For Adobe Acrobat and Acrobat Reader automatic updates, see Automatic updates | Acrobat, Reader.
Using a plug-in?
If you've installed third-party plug-ins, they may not work with the latest version of the apps. Contact your plug-in vendor for information about compatibility and updates.
If auto-update is not enabled, you can retrieve the latest updates for your Creative Cloud apps without waiting for the Creative Cloud desktop app to notify you.
If auto-update is not enabled, you can manually update all your apps at once. When you update your apps, preferences and settings are migrated to the new version. The previous versions of the apps are uninstalled. You can use the Advanced options to change these default settings.
Save your work and close all Adobe apps before you begin. If Adobe apps are open, you may receive a warning to close them. For more help, see Close conflicting processes or applications.
