Is there any other way i would be able to download the creative cloud desktop apps? I am currently in school for Graphic Design and am unable to proceed with my lessons until i have downloaded the creative cloud desktop app, and all i have right now is a Acer Chromebook 15.

Any advice is welcome as i desperately need to find a way to get this complete so i am able to continue with my lesson.

Thanks in advance.

you need a computer with a full windows or mac os.  chromebook computers don't have full os'es so you can't use desktop apps.

you can use cc services which is what your computer was designed to use.

but chromebook users can't use the apps, arguably the main benefit of a cc subscription

There are a few things you can use online, in a browser, like Portfolio. But none of the main things which make Creative Cloud. Nothing for graphic design. Basically, you don't have what you need. CC apps are high end and don't just need a Mac/Windows computer, they need a high spec computer. Important lesson.
