How do I stop all adobe proceses?

Hello, I am on MAC OS, but I would like an answer for all platforms that Adobe runs on.

Is there a button for Creative Cloud to just turn off all Adobe software and processes when I am done using it for the day?

I can close all of the programs, such as Photoshop and Illustrator, etc., but there are many processes like Core Sync and Desktop Services that continue to run.

Is there a button to just turn it all off when I'm not using Adobe software?

Thank you,

you can use task manager (win) or activity monitor (mac) to terminate all adobe processes.

That's a great answer, and it works.

I am able to do that in the Task Manager and the Activity Monitor, but I sometimes have to chase the processes and end them more than once to make them stay off.

Also, that method feels kind of like opening the hood of my car and pulling out fuses until my radio shuts off.

The dream solution is a button or app from Adobe that turns off Adobe.

Do you know of any such thing?

Great answer, and I did not even know I could show all processes.  That made me try Apple clicking more than one process, and OMG, it works.  Even though that seems to be the most common way to turn off processes,  do you know of a button or app from Adobe that turns off Adobe? Just "Click" / Done.

make sure you're aware of the cancellation terms by selecting your plan type (at the top of the page here), https://helpx.adobe.com/manage-account/using/creative-cloud-subscription-terms.html

for info on how to cancel your subscription, this page describes the few steps involved, https://helpx.adobe.com/manage-account/using/cancel-subscription.html

if you want to cancel but are unable to follow the steps described in the "how to cancel page", contact adobe support.

there are 3 ways to contact adobe; chat, phone and twitter:

chat:
use a browser that allows popups and cookies, and click here, https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html?rghtup=autoOpen
in the chat field (lower right), type AGENT
be patient, it can take quite a while to reach a human.

phone:
https://helpx.adobe.com/contact/phone.html

twitter:
tweet @AdobeCare

p.s. if you're contacted by anyone (via email or private message), it's much more likely to be a scammer than an adobe representative. ie, double check for an employee badge if contacted in the forums and look for an adobe.com domain in the email address if you click reply to an email. then check again and be very suspicious. any other method of contacting (or offering to contact you) is almost certainly a scam, https://community.adobe.com/t5/using-the-community-discussions/staying-safe-in-the-adobe-support-com...
