    Where's Photoshop?

    i_am_jim Level 1

      I just signed up for Photoshop CC.  Via the Creative Cloud I downloaded and presumably installed Photoshop.  It took 10-15 minutes and Creative Cloud it says "Up to date."  But, I can find no evidence of it on my computer.  There's no icon on my desktop.  It doesn't seem to be in All Programs.  I can find no folder for it in the Program Files directory.

       

      Where the hell is it?

       

      Edited to add:

       

      I'm running windows 8.1

          Did you look on the start screen and scroll over?  Win 8.1 put new programs there, and are sometimes hard to find.  Did you also do an app search?

            I don't use the un-charming screen, but I did look there for it.

             

            I've found it.  Incredibly Photoshop is still using the XP installation protocol.  It never crossed my mind to look in Program Files(x86).  I assumed the most expensive program I use wasn't still back in 2006

             

            Thanks for your reply.  You don't by chance know where the program is in "All Programs"  do you

              Photoshop should also be loaded in the normal program folder and not use in the 32 bit (x86) programs.  Did you look in explorer under C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC (64 Bit)\Photoshop.exe?  I'm still getting the hang of finding programs in 8.1, so not really sure about all programs.  I used to know how to do it, but now it doesn't seem to be working.

                I only stumbled on it by looking in the x86 folder.

                That's where I looked immediately and no, it's not there.

                 

                Thanks for trying anyway. 

                 

                Any  chance you know how to migrate all my settings including workspace configuration from CS4?

                  Type Ctrl+F type Creative Cloud.

                    Thanks very much for replying.

                     

                    Google lead to that page from many directions. [There doesn't seem to be a page like this for CC] I found it confusing and didn't know if it worked in CC anyway.  I probably only have a half dozen what I understand as Presets and they should be easily replicated.  I wanted to get my Actions and my custom Workspace so I could start using the program.  That page doesn't address Workspaces and I didn't know Actions were considered presets.  I think of Presets as specially saved configuration of tools like Curves, Hue & Saturation, Clone Stamp, etc. -- very different from Actions.

                     

                    After several hours of googling I figured out how to import Actions and Workspace (each separately) late last night. Later I stumbled on how to import (migrate) the Presets.  Once I found it, it only took one click and it was done -- incredibly easy.

                      Sorry it took so much effort.  I usually don't have much to transfer from version to version, so I don't do that often other than actions & scripts.
