Creative Cloud application window opens when switching between Spaces | Mac OS X


When you switch between virtual Desktops, known as Spaces, the Creative Cloud application window opens.


Unpin the Creative Cloud application from the menu bar and open it as a window instead.
  1. In the Creative Cloud application window, click the gear icon.
  2. Choose Open As Window.
  3. From the gear icon, choose Preferences.
  4. Deselect Attach window to menu bar icon.

Once you choose these settings, the application can still be accessed by clicking the menu bar icon. But it no longer automatically opens each time you switch between Spaces. Adobe plans to address this behavior in an update to the Creative Cloud application.
