I looked through all the forums and everyone just says to fix the settings in the Adobe Cloud App

Apps Install Location: D Drive

Files Install Location: D Drive.

My D drive is just a split internal hard drive on my laptop. 

When I install it goes right to my C drive for apps and files.

How do i force it to install on my D drive?

the cc desktop app must be installed on the os drive.the apps can be installed on any drive, but not its root:  with the CC application opened, choose the 3 dots in the upper right corner and then choose Preferences.  in the preferences panel select Creative Cloud and then look for the Install Location drop down

Sorry if i was not clear in my message above but in preferences i already edited it and its showing the following.

This is in the ADOBE Cloud App. Clicking the 3 dots.

Apps Install Location: D Drive

Files Install Location: D Drive.

it still installs both my apps and files on the C drive.

I tried reinstalling the ADOBE Cloud App and now it works correctly

There is no option to specify drive to install to on individual programs. It looks they will all install to a different drive. My C: drive is full and I try to get some space back. Is there a way for me to uninstall one or 2 to another drive while keep the rest in the same location? I specified D drive as my installation location in preference. I'm uninstalling now and wonder if the installation would work since I still have a few on C:.

I do this but it says it can't install on my D drive either, it goes straight to C drive.  Why is this?

What's the exact message about your D drive? Be sure not to install to the root directory (that is, 😧 itself), make a folder first.
