Step 1: From your Academic Software dashboard, go to the Adobe Creative Cloud page. If you have not requested your activation code yet, click the green “Request” button on the right of the page. You will receive a link to Adobe’s website in your inbox, which you can click in order to download the Creative Cloud software client.
Step 2: Download the installer and run it. Log in using your e-mail address or school account. The Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop app will be installed automatically.
Step 3: You can now install software from the Creative Cloud client, where you will automatically be signed into the separate apps.
In the Creative Cloud Desktop app, you can install and run Adobe programs, and save all your projects in the cloud. You can also sort the available tools by category on the left.
