Bridge 2021 is automatically downloading on my computer. I have creative cloud and ever since I started using Photoshop 2021 Bridge downloads and opens randomly from time to time.

I personally never use Bridge and I work mainly on the cloud because my computer has limited disk space. I do not want unnecessary software downloaded on my computer. I have now removed Bridge 2021 twice already but it just keeps installing automatically and starting up when I use Photoshop. 

Does anyone know if and how I can turn off this feature? And if not, please adobe, don't force people to use software they don't need.

then uninstall all bridge versions, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-remove-app.html

try resetting the cc app: To reset the Creative Cloud desktop app, make sure it's in the foreground, then press:

check for, and if available, update your os
