How to locate Creative Cloud applications that are currently residing on my Mac.

I want to completely remove Creative Cloud for desktop, from my Mac, using the Creative Cloud Uninstaller.app.

 

But every time I try, a banner comes up that says, "Couldn't uninstall Creative Cloud for desktop. You still have Creative Cloud applications installed on your computer that require it".

 

Well, I certainly didn't voluntarily install any Creative Cloud applications, that I know of.

 

How do I find out what, and where, they are, so that I could completely remove them, and completely remove Creative Cloud for desktop, from my Mac?

This is the Photoshop Elements forum. Photoshop Elements is not part of Creative Cloud. Do you have Photoshop Elements? What Adobe folders show up in your Applications folder?

You asked if I had Photoshop Elements.
I thought the info provided previously, 19.0 (20210811.m.158081, would have been sufficient.

Anyway, I have Adobe Photoshop Elements 2021, in the applications folder, along with Adobe Elements Organizer 2021.

The rest of the Adobe products in the application folder are, Adobe Photoshop Elements 2020, along with Adobe Elements Organizer 2020, Adobe Lightroom 5.7.1, and Adobe Acrobat Reader version 21.005.20058.

Yesterday, the update for APE 2021 was preformed. I won't go into the hassle that it was. If you search these forums you will read my previous problems.

Ever since I first installed APE 2021, or install a new version for it, Adobe has always deposited these folders in the Macs' 'Utilities' folder, Adobe Applications Manager, Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe Genuine Service, and Adobe Installers.

I never understand why Adobe continually deposits anything in the 'Utilities' folder.

Why not deposit these folders in the folder 'Adobe', that Adobe always creates here, Macintosh HD > Library > Application Support > Adobe.

Or in the 'Adobe' folder that Adobe always creates here, Macintosh HD > Users > My Name > Library > Application Support > Adobe.

It certainly would be simpler, if there was clear information as to what Creative Cloud applications were installed on my computer.

So is there anyone, that could clearly tell me the easiest way to track down, and remove, all Creative Cloud applications, that are on the Mac?

In simple terms, what are the Creative Cloud applications?

As I previously mentioned, I'm asking here since every time I install a new version of APE 2021, it installs Creative Cloud.
