Please read ALL of the instructions before starting.


When accessing the Adobe applications installed on your computer for the first time, you must log into the Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop Application. With Adobe's new licensing system, each user has to be authorized to use our licensed applications. 


From The Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop Application, you can install any of the available applications that we are licensed to use (including the full version of Acrobat). Please note that each application takes a large amount of space so please keep that in mind when installing these programs. To save space, you may also remove the older versions of the Adobe Applications that are no longer licensed. To remove an application in Windows 10 type "applications" in the search box at the bottom of the screen. You should see "Add or remove programs" appear in the search results. From there you can remove all the older Adobe products before installing the new ones. 


To authorize/install your new Adobe Applications:


1. Open the "Adobe Creative Cloud" program located on your desktop:




2. At the Adobe sign in prompt, type "ravenscroft.org" (no quotes) and click continue. Do NOT use the Google sign in button. It is not necessary to type your entire email address at this step:



3. You will see a Google login page. Type your full email address and click Next:



4. Type your email password and click Sign In:



5. You should now be logged into the Adobe Desktop Application:




If you are directed from step 2 to step 6 (you never see the Google sign in page), then the program may be using cached login info. To check to make sure it is logged in correctly, you can click the icon in the upper right corner of the application (directly under the X that closes the program) and it should show you your login info:





If you are not sure, you can click the sign out link and start the sign in process again.
