I can still open the apps if I type them in the search bar of my pc. I can still download apps from the browser version, but I cannot update or uninstall apps because the Adobe Creative Cloud refuses to open. I have treid everything from uninstalling it, to reinstalling, to restarting my pc, and everything that I read in this link: https://community.adobe.com/t5/download-install-discussions/adobe-creative-cloud-will-not-open/td-p/...

 

It refuses to open. I close it in task manager but it still does nothing. Whenever I run the application, the only thing that pops up is a notification for updates in the bottom right. When I click it to open the creative cloud, nothing happens. Please help!

reset the cc desktop app: make sure it's in the foreground, then press:

Win: Ctrl + Alt + R
Mac: Cmd + Opt + R

if that fails, try to repair
