The answer to this question can vary depending on the steps you took when installing the Adobe CC to your hard drive. If you used another location than the default one, then it should be installed at that location.

If you used the default installation folder, then you will be able to find your Adobe Creative Cloud installation folder inside the following location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Creative Cloud\ACC

Where is the software installed through the Adobe CC suite?

In order for the Adobe CC suite to work efficiently, the developers of this app have made it so that the installed applications are first downloaded inside your PC’s Temp folder (temporary files).

The installer package is temporarily stored on your PC, and once the download is installed on your hard drive, the installation files are removed. If for some reason the temporary files are not automatically deleted, check out this handy guide to get rid of them once and for all.

This allows you not to clog your system with unnecessary download files, and can also help you manage the installed Adobe apps easily.


So that’s how you can find the Adobe Creative Cloud download folder easily. Choose any of the scenarios presented, depending on your needs.
