Can't change Install Location back to default

In this day and age, on Windows, it is common to have a smaller SSD drive as primary (C:) and then use a traditional mechanical HDD drive as D:. Windows 10 even provides this wonderful option of "moving" an installation from one drive to another with a single click. Very nice, though not all apps support this of course.

So, Adobe Creative Cloud does it a different way. We have to launch ACC, go to Preferences and change "Install Location". (oh and you have to uninstall an app first, there is no "moving" the app.).

OK fine, what am I leading up to? I'll get to the point: If one had changed the Install Location from "Default" to something else like D:/Apps/Adobe, HOW do we then put it BACK to default? Right now you have NOT built in a method to reset that installation path to your default. I want to set mine back, but WHERE is "default"? Should I guess? I don't want to do that.

Please fix this.

The default location for Windows 10 installation is C:\Program Files\Adobe.

Please update this public forum discussion if you have any questions, or you face any errors with adjusting the install location.

you mean the location of the cc desktop app, or the default location of the cc apps managed by the cc desktop app?

Hi there.  Thank you for the quick reply.

I'm referring to the location of Premiere Pro, specifically.  I initially installed it on another drive (not C:) and now I'd like to move it back to the default location.  I would prefer to be able to do it without losing my settings, plugins, or extensions.

uninstall premiere using the desktop app but opt to leave your preferences.

 

then change your app install location using the cc app preferences, and install premiere to your preferred location.

 

if you need details of any step, let me know.
