My creative cloud doesn't open it says "loading takes unusually long". Nothing happens, no reinstall helps, no reboot helps. What's wrong? And why do I even need that Creative Cloud when all I want to have is Photoshop on my PC?

Hi @kglad ,
It works now. I had reinstalled the app multiple times before making this post so I skipped straight to the link you posted on the bottom of you answer. When I used https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/creative-cloud-desktop-app-download.html (which seems to download a different executable somehow) it worked.
