it would be nice if adobe would allow activation of creative cloud apps on 3 devices instead of the current 2.  I need to be able work from the office pc, home pc and laptop - with only 2 activations at one time - i have to deactivate one of my other computers each time.  I do not think it should be an issue for adobe to allow 3 computers to have the apps activated at the same time.

The number of Active, Sign In, Computers is Two. But you can have the CC DTA and all the programs you subscribe to installed on many computers.

 

I currently have it installed on 3 computers.

There is 2 ways to Deactivate a computer.

1) Sign out of one of them before you Sign into a different one.

2) If you go to your Adobe user account there is a section of Manage Your Account where you can deactivate computers that are listed.

 Nobody here has any influence over Adobe's activation policy.  Why don't you submit a feature request below where Adobe will see it?

Suggesting to Adobe as a feature request is a good idea, as well as knowing how to manage your two activations.


Just be aware that it's been the same way since Creative Cloud originally launched in 2012, and Adobe hasn't shown any signs of changing the policy. But asking can never hurt!

After Re-Reading your initial post are you talking about Activations or Using more than one computer at a time.

As shown in the screen shot I posted it looks like I have 4 computer activated (2 of them are for the same computer, a Windows 10 system, so really only 3). But I only use the adobe programs on one computer at a time.

 

I have found with the 3 computers that are listed there, the i5, E6420 and the iMac, that I can use all three, One At A Time, without having to Deactivate one of them.

As long as the other 2 or possibly only one of them Shut Down and Adobe apps only open on one of them all I have to do is shut down the Adobe apps on the one I'm using, Go to one of the other computers and open the Adobe apps and or shut one system down and turn another on.

 

Are you trying to Run all 3 at the same time and have Adobe apps open on all three at the same time?
