How to access LR & PS through the new Adobe interface?

Somehow or another, Adobe performed an update of “Creative Cloud” in my computer.

 

Now when I click on the “Creative Cloud” icon on my desktop in order to access LR Classic or PS, a new interface pops up and I can’t seem to find a way to open LR or PS.

 

The new interface seems to offer quite a few tutorial options of various Adobe apps, but no way to access the LR & PS app.

 

Can anyone provide me with direction?

 

Prior to this new interface, I would simply click on the Creative Cloud icon followed by a list of Adobe apps to select from.

This is the new interface.  I've been clicking all over the place and still can't find a way to open LR & PS:

It’s asking you to update your apps because you are running older versions. After the are updated the blue buttons will change to say “open”. Is there a reason that you don’t want to run the updates?

Do the [Update] buttons work when you click them?

Or maybe you just need to Sign-out then Sign-In to refresh the Desktop App.

When the programs are up-to-date you should see the [Open] buttons-

And you have a few notifications to read! (See the 'Bell' icon)

Theresa & Wobert; thank you for your reply. Have been reluctant to update LR or PS because of the problems reported by some photographers after updating to newer versions of the Adobe apps. This is actually a case in point, as I have been left in a state of confusion after this inadvertent Creative Cloud update. I would like to try your suggestion of signing out and signing back in. Naive question, but I don’t see an option to sign out on this new interface. Since my original post, I have discovered that if I click on the 3 dots (i.e., the “more actions” symbol) to the right of the “update” button (see illustration of new interface posted above), I get an “open” option to open the LR or PS app. (Yes, I’m computer challenged. 😞 ) In any event, this is progress, - as I’m now able to at least access LR & PS. Still hoping, however, that I can find a way to access LR & PS the “old fashion way” - through the uncomplicated window, which simply lists all the Adobe apps, - accessed through the Adobe Creative Cloud icon on my desktop.

Another point of confusion:  Since the Creative Cloud update, the format for Adobe Forum has changed, as well.  “Reply” field in this new format has now been relegated to a single line in which to type a response, if responding to one of your replies.  Previous forum format provided a large “reply” area in which paragraphs could be typed and illustrated as paragraphs.

 

Larger field for paragraphing is still made available, however, if I reply to my own original post, as I am doing here.  Yet, the area has been reduced considerably now and requires scrolling to view.

 

Also, for some odd reason, the “reply” option under each of your responses is now suddenly inactive; so, I do not have the option of responding directly to you.

There should still be 'Open' buttons behind the names, just like before. But wouldn't it be easier to add the apps to your Macintosh Dock or Windows Taskbar?

Do you mean users actually use the application manager to start their applications? I have never done that. I have icons added to the taskbar. I hardly ever go to the application manager because it automatically updates my Adobe apps. If I right-click on the Lightroom icon in the taskbar, I can choose between different catalogs for quick and efficient switching. Very little need to ever go to the application manager, in my opinion.
