    FAQ: How do I uninstall the Photoshop CS6 beta?

    Pete.Green Employee Hosts

      With the Photoshop CS6 beta coming to a close and the 60 day trial period expiring, you'll be looking to uninstall the beta software from your system.

       

      It is recommended that you uninstall the Photoshop CS6 beta prior to installing the official release of Photoshop CS6.

       

      Uninstallation is easy, and can be done in just a couple steps depending on your Operating System.

       

      Important: Do not attempt to manually uninstall or remove Photoshop CS6 beta by dragging folders to the Recycle Bin (Windows) or Trash (Mac OS). Doing so can cause problems with uninstallation, and installation in the future.

       

      If you've already tried to manually uninstall the Photoshop Cs6 beta, see the instructions at the bottom of this post for using the Adobe Creative Suite Cleaner Tool.
