We’re excited to announce the release of version 1.9 of Adobe Creative Cloud for desktop. It brings several new features and improvements that help you stay up-to-date and increase your productivity.


Some key highlights of the release

To enable auto-update, just select Always keep Creative Cloud for desktop up to date when installing an update. You can, at any time, enable or disable the auto-update setting from the General tab in the Preferences dialog for Creative Cloud for desktop.

    After the update, the application is gone. All Apps are there but not the Creative Cloud App.
