I'm running InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator as of yesterday I can't get them to work at all.
They will open but it's just a blank grey screen and all the menu options are greyed out.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled, tried to restart and hold down the keys to delete the preferences etc...
has this problem always been present or were those programs working properly when first installed.
if they were once working properly, what changed?
My computer shut down yesterday randomly, then when I turned it back on all the programs reopened and seemed to be fine.
That was until I went to make a new document and it was greyed out, then after that all the menu options started greying out and I couldn't even close it. I force quit it and uninstalled and reinstalled. I've tried to delete the preferences as well.
I'm running Catalina 10.15.7
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
if that fails go ahead and uninstall using the correct uninstaller from https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-creative-cloud-desktop-app.html#sa_src=web-mes... and then reinstall
if that fails, do a clean cc install following each applicable step:

if you're unable to download the cc desktop app at this stage, use the "alternative download links" at the bottom of the page at https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/creative-cloud-desktop-app-download.html and select the correct installer for your os. probably this one:

I uninstalled the cc desktop - restarted - reinstalled - and redownloaded the programs and they seem to be working now!
