I currently have Photoshop CC 2020 on my Windows 10 system and it's up to date. I have been unable to find out how to upgrade to CC 2021. Will my CC 2020 be automatically updated or will I need to install the new version and if so, where do I find the download link. I can't find anything about a download on Adobe.com. Thanks.

Open the Creative Cloud desktop app, and you will find the update.

Click this icon in the taskbar to open it

The only way I can access CC 2021 is to open it through the Creative Cloud
app. I'm up to date on the updates. When I use my desktop icon for
Photoshop it opens the older version! Maybe a glich? I have never seen a
prompt to install CC 2021 like a friend did. I'm on Windows and he uses Mac.

"I have never seen a prompt to install CC 2021"

You may have this enabled in the CC preferences

Thanks so much. That worked !! This is the first NEW version of Photoshop CC for me. I'm used to automatic updates. It would be nice if an option for a desktop icon to be installed automatically were available. Most software that I use provides the option to create a desktop icon when installing new versions. Anyway, I'm good to go now. One problem, all of my plugins that are installed on Photoshop CC 2020 aren't showing up. I believe someone else had this problem and they are somewhere else in the the new 2021. Have to go back and read where they are.
