I want to completely uninstall Adobe Photoshop, Adobe CC, etc.

I want to uninstall everything that has anything to do with Adobe.

Processes like these:

are always running. I want them all gone.

How can I uninstall everything related to Adobe from my computer?

I want to get rid of all the services, background processes, and apps that would have been installed when I got CC.

  • Have you tried the Adobe Uninstaller located in the Adobe folder in Applications? If not, what have you tried so far? – Allan Jun 20 '18 at 16:46
  • I've thrown a quick answer in, but essentially this is either a 'zero research' or a Basic Customer Support question – Tetsujin Jun 20 '18 at 16:52
  • none of my business but it sounds like you don't like Adobe. May I ask why? – jmh Jun 20 '18 at 20:14
  • @jmh I just don't use it anymore but it still has all these daemons and services and things in the background which irritates me a little. – theonlygusti Jun 20 '18 at 20:19

Every CC app has an uninstaller filed with the app.

These are repeated in the Utilities folder, in Adobe Installers.

The only one that doesn't is the Adobe Application Manager, for which there's an uninstaller here


Another way to completely uninstall apps is to use a third party app like App Clean, Dr. Cleaner, or one of several other apps in the App Store. I've used App Cleaner and it worked fine. This app worked after I deleted the app. App Cleaner popped open a message asking if I wanted to remove other files related to my deleted app. It listed the other files and then deleted them.
