When there’s a Photoshop update, people often tell me they don’t see the update. New updates are listed in the Adobe Creative Cloud app, but they don’t always appear right away. From time to time, your CC app will ping the server and check for updates. If an update has been released, it won’t appear in the CC app until it has checked the cloud. Here’s how you can force it to check. 

Open your Creative Cloud app. Near the top left you’ll see Updates. Click on that and you’ll see a list of the available updates. This isn’t the tip. At the top right you’ll see Check for Updates. Click that button and all the latest updates will appear.

This tip previously appeared in Colin Smith’s Photoshop Tips column in the August, 2022 issue of Photoshop User magazine.
