Adobe Background Processes

Processes Consolidation & Improvements

 

Based on user feedback and our developers' efforts, we've significantly reduced the number of Adobe background processes. Some processes would continue to operate in the background & others are now optimized to run on demand, leading to improved performance. We are continuing to work on further reducing the number of processes in the future. The number of processes listed in the linked help article has been greatly reduced from the original count.

Overview


Adobe background processes run behind the scenes and perform several important tasks that make your Adobe apps run seamlessly. You may not always notice them, but these critical background processes work even when not using any of your Adobe apps. Some of them are meant to sync your fonts or libraries to the cloud, while some install automatic updates for your apps.

Similarly, your Creative Cloud desktop app interacts with other background processes on your device. These services (such as Creative Cloud Core Service, Adobe Content Synchronizer, and Creative Cloud Libraries Synchronizer) perform tasks like app installations and updates and asset syncing.

 

  • There will be fewer entries in the Task Manager on Windows due to modifications we made to the Crash Reporter processes. Click on the button below for more information.

I want them all gone. If I'm not using adobe, I want nothing running. It should and can be a simple switch. I don't want fonts etc to sync, it can do that when I start the application and I will accept the slower start up. I don't use any Adobe cloud storage, nor ever want to, so this also should not be running, even if I were to, if I don't have the application open why sync at all??? I'm switching to Affinity, started learning the program two days ago because of this issue.

im also looking into lightroom alternatives because of this. the background processes sound shady to say the least, i cannot understand why they need to be running at all times, and most of all i cannot understand why we don't have a say in what runs in our computers. At least have it be optional for people that prefer the fonts to sync up offline, vs people that dont!

Posting anywhere doesn't make them respond. There are several reports in their reporting system about this, they have not responded to the community at all in years... people keep marking the posts as answered because of some work around that worked for one or two people.

Type in "running in background" in the community and you'll see this is purposely being ignored.

Thank you for letting me know. Since it has been ignored for so long, I'm just going to move on from Adobe. There are some things I cannot accept of a third party software company, running on my computer without my explicit permission to, is one of them.

Hi @Emily287210047g5v and @gardengnome999. I head up product for the Creative Cloud desktop app. We are aware of the complaints around processes running in the background and have been working on reducing this as can be evidenced by the original post here. There are preferences in the Creative Cloud app that you can use to disable syncing when the app is not running.

 

The Creative Cloud app provides capabilities for all 20+ desktop apps Adobe has and unfortunately none of the changes we make are trivial since we need to coordinate with many other product teams to ensure we don't disrupt existing workflows for our members. We're continuing to work on reducing our resource footprint on machines as part of the product roadmap.
