I bought the student version of Adobe today... And when I wanted to download it I saw that I was logged in with my old account and I dont know how to logout and login after with another Account.... I had the old Account because I downoaded the trial version of After Effects and made a new Account when I bought Student version... Can you help me with logging out? 😃
btw: sorry if my english isn´t perfect
Hi Jonas van Essen
Click the gear icon in the upper-right corner and select Preferences.
In the Preferences menu, under General, click the Account tab.
Click Sign Out from Creative Cloud.
When prompted, sign in with your Adobe ID (usually your email address) and password.
Please let us know if this was helpful.
thank you very much! It was helpful! 😃
Hi Jonas van Esse,
Thanks for the update.
Thank you. This was very helpful.
One has to wonder why such a simple thing like signing out is made so complex and hidden in such an obscure place i.e. Cog (setting) -> Preferences -> Sign out. Signing out is not a preference. It is an action. Then you get nagged after clicking Sign out. I seriously wonder who dreams up these convoluted ways of doing things.
Thanks So Much!
Open the cloud app and click on the little gear logo, select "Preferences…". In the "General" tab, click on "Accounts", then click on the "Sign Out from Creative Cloud" button. It will then ask you to log in and will act as if your apps need to be reinstalled, but wait a bit and it will recognize what's already installed.
btw: your English is fine, wouldn't have known if you hadn't mentioned it. Your writing is perfect in my opinion, unlike a lot of those who speak English as their primary language.
Oops. Just a bit late and just after a better response with screenshots. Good luck anyway.
Hello. I try this and the only options I get under the Gear button are Help; Open As Window and Quit. There is NO preferences option. Please help.
Me too, did you solve it already?
The complete procedure is given in the post, are you facing any particular issue in deactivating, please let us know.
My Preferences is greyed out, can't click on it. What do i do
Did you solve it?
Yes and my Preferences option is grayed out and CAN'T be selected!! Looks like Adobe is on top of things once again.
Got it figured out! There was an update pending that was apparently preventing the login/logout.
Hello Sir, if this option is still not resolved. Here few things you can try:
1) Open any abode application and click sign out from that application and close it and then try to open creative cloud and see if you can sign out.
2) Make sure all apps are CLOSED then sign out. It worked for me.
apprentl the sign out button seems to be un use able in my copy of creative cloud
can you help me?
I accidentally typed in a wrong email address and now I can't change it, so I can't sign in. Can anyone help me?

Thanks for the Help
Thank you! Can't believe i didn't find that button... the sign out button should not be in the preferences! adobe fail ... but at least now we know how to sign out.
