We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
I have my Adobe programs installed on a secondary drive ("D").
On updates through clicking the Update button on Creative Cloud Desktop, why oh why does Adobe thinks it knows better than I do where I want my programs installed by installing it to my boot drive ("C")?
This just happened with updates of Photoshop 2021 to 2022. And now that I noticed it, I'm fairly sure it happened with Acrobat as well.
Just no, seriously!
was your install directory still the d drive or was that reset to default (c)?
Lightroom Classic is still on D. Acrobat DC folder in C was created in September, Photoshop 2022 today. It didn't do that when Photoshop was upgraded from 2020 to 2021 (the leftover old installation folder are still there).
I haven't changed anything. I don't even know how to set it differently. It's an upgrade, not a fresh installation. It shouldn't change by itself.
open your cc desktop app
check your install location
Ktchan, to add to Kglad's helpful response, please see https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/using/change-install-location.html for information on how to customize the install applications for Adobe CC applications.
Please be aware that the Creative Cloud desktop app, shared services, and resources will always be installed on the same drive that contains the operating system.
Thanks for all the responses
