I want to de activate an install of creative cloud on 1 laptop to install it on a newer laptop. How do I go about this?
open your cc desktop app and sign out, http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/sign-in-out-creative-cloud-desktop-app.html
or you can just sign in to your cc desktop app on your 3rd computer and it will give you the option to sign out of your other two computers.
if you need the cc desktop app, Download Adobe Creative Cloud apps | Free Adobe CC trial
