CAUTION: Creative software products uses a lot of memory. Only install the programs required by your teacher. Do not install more programs than necessary, as this will cause your computer to slow down exponentially.
- Before you begin:
- Restart your computer. (recommended)
- Close all other apps and windows. (recommended)
- Plan to allow time for the installation to run outside of class time. (recommended)
- Installation time is dependent on your internet speed.
- If you usually have issues with slow internet, you may need to go to campus or another site to connect to a higher speed network.
- Launch Adobe CC from your taskbar.
- Log in with your IDEA Student email and password.
- Click the Install button to download and install the apps you need on your IDEA laptop.
- Try not to close the window or disconnect from the internet (WiFi) while the software downloads and installs. (If you are unable to complete the installation due to slow internet speed at home, put in a support ticket to schedule on-site installation with your campus tech.)
