Photoshop: How do I install on a different drive?

Adobe Products must allow install into other drive locations.   Make a note in a config file or registry key where the product has installed.   Hire programmers with some experience.  Not just some kids out of college who have learned how to click their way obediently through MS Visual Studio.

C Drive is the only installation option for Adobe Pro CC and Adobe Pro 2017.   Probably for most other current Adobe products installed via the Creative Cloud installer.

This is unforgivable.   Adobe Pro is 4.5 Gigs minimum after install.   Photoshop much more.  Adobe's requirement that their apps must install only onto C Drive is a step backward.

If I didn't HAVE to edit PDFs, I would refuse to give Adobe another penny until they put some more thought (and work) into their app installers.

Hi Jereme:

The C drive on Windows or Macintosh HD on Mac is just the default install location.

You can change this using the Install Location pop-up menu in Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop.

If not already open, launch Creative Cloud Desktop and go to Preferences > Creative Cloud > Apps > Install Location.

Use the pop-up menu to select the desired install location.
