Installing and managing Adobe Creative Cloud applications using Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop


Installing Adobe Creative Cloud desktop applications on your university-issued device.


  1. Make sure you have the Creative Cloud Desktop application installed on your computer. Check by searching the Start Menu for "Adobe Creative Cloud". If not installed, it can be easily installed from Software Center. See Microsoft Endpoint Manager - Using Software Center for information on installing from Software Center. Within Software Center, the application is called "Adobe Creative Cloud (Self-Service)"
  2. Once installed, open "Adobe Creative Cloud" from the start menu and sign in using your UW-Platteville email account. If prompted, select "Company or School Account". Otherwise, complete the UW-Platteville Single Sign-on process including responding to the Duo prompts. Please note that the Creative Cloud Desktop app will likely have an update or two. You can check the status of these updates by clicking on the cloud icon in the upper right corner of the application.
