Example email from Adobe.
  1. Click the Get Started link in the email to finish setting up your account.

If you remember receiving the email but lost or deleted it, open Creative Cloud > click Sign In > follow the account verification steps to set your password.

2. Install the Creative Cloud Desktop App

Once signed in to your Adobe account, click Install Creative Cloud App.

3. Install Adobe tools using the Creative Cloud App
