  1. From the Creative Cloud website, browse for and download your desired app. Click Apps on the top of the page to view all apps.

If you receive an error message stating that you do not have permission to access Creative Cloud, please check you are not signed into any other personal Microsoft accounts, or try a different browser.

For more information on how to download or install apps, see Download and Install Creative Cloud apps.

Please ensure you save your work to OneDrive or your local computer, not the Creative Cloud as you will no longer be able to access Creative Cloud storage once your original Adobe license is returned.

For Higher Education students to continue developing skills, Adobe offers free “Daily Creative Challenges”. These are guided projects where participants receive creative prompts and connect with pros, mentors, and other students for feedback and support. Click on the app name to learn more: PhotoshopXD and Illustrator. Also, for inspiration and over-the-shoulder learning, watch pros share their creative process on Adobe Live daily at

For faculty seeking to engage students during campus closures, Adobe has curated resources to help them discover inspiring projects, best practices, and new ideas so they can continue to drive valuable learning in virtual environments.
