Open apps using the Creative Cloud desktop app

With the Creative Cloud desktop app, you can easily see all your Creative Cloud apps at a glance and launch them with a click. 

Note:

A few apps, such as Touch App Plugins or Gaming SDK, can’t be opened from the Creative Cloud desktop app.

  1. Open the Creative Cloud desktop app. (Select the   icon in your Windows taskbar or the macOS menu bar.)

  2. In the Apps panel, scroll to the app you want to open. Then, select Open.

    Open your Creative Cloud apps

    Your app opens successfully. 

Note:

If you're on macOS 13 Ventura, you need to be connected to the Internet when you open your apps for the first time. We also recommend that you keep the Adobe Creative Cloud login item enabled in your Mac's System Settings to avoid disruptions while using your apps offline. Learn how to enable the Adobe Creative Cloud login item.
