Adobe products are designed for the latest operating systems and browsers. Learn how to keep your operating system and software up to date.

Why did I get a warning to update my operating system or browser?

Adobe products require the latest operating system and browser updates—both for your security and to ensure that Adobe products function as intended. If you are not using the latest operating system or browser, you may see a warning when you try to sign in to Adobe software.

Update operating system or your Adobe apps

If you see such a warning, ensure that you install the latest updates of the operating system you are using.

Windows users:

Starting in August 2020, only Internet Explorer versions 11 and later will be supported. Adobe software uses Internet Explorer during the sign-in process. If your system doesn't have the latest browser updates, you will not be able to sign in. Once you install the latest update to your operating system, a supported version of Internet Explorer is automatically installed.

How to keep your operating system current?
