Learn about the latest operating system guidelines for your Creative Cloud desktop apps.

Are Creative Cloud 2022 apps supported by my operating system?

Creative Cloud desktop apps work with the latest operating systems for macOS and Windows, and two prior versions. Most Creative Cloud 2022 desktop apps work with the following operating systems:

  • Windows 11, Windows 10 versions 21H1, 21H2, and 20H2 (LTSB branches are not supported)
  • macOS 12 (Monterey), macOS 11 and macOS 10.16 (Big Sur), and macOS 10.15 (Catalina)

To learn about the system requirements of each Creative Cloud app, see Creative Cloud system requirements.


Adobe XD will continue to support Windows 10 versions 19H2 and 20H1.

Why should I keep my operating system current?

We focus our development efforts on more recent versions of Windows and Mac operating systems to ensure peak performance and security. Our product offerings are in line with the latest support policies from Microsoft and Apple for their operating systems. For optimal performance and security, we recommend you keep the operating system of your computer up to date.

What operating system version do I have?

Follow the instructions for your operating system.

What should I do if I can't upgrade my operating system?

If you can't upgrade your operating system right now, you can continue to use the currently installed version of your Creative Cloud apps—although functionality may be limited—until you can upgrade.
