I agree! I wish they would STOP updating so much. I wish they wouldn't have this ridiculous monthly subscription service. I wish they would let me open the program even if its not updated just in case i'm in a plane and I, not around wifi. JUST STOP TAKING ADVANTAGE OF USERS.
This is the Photoshop Elements forum, not the Photoshop forum, so you might want to take any suggestions you have to that forum.
Also, I think this is the first time I've ever seen someone complaining about an application having too many updates 🙂
If you're really worried about boarding a plane, you've got the option to open the Creative Cloud Desktop app, go to File > Preferences and under Settings turn off the "Always keep Creative Cloud up to date" option.
