Registration within your desktop product

Most versions of Adobe software allow you to register the product when you launch the application on your machine. Complimentary benefits offered in many products are available when registering this way, within your desktop product.

After installing your software and opening it for the first time, a registration screen will prompt you to register by completing a few fields. Just enter the information and click register. Alternatively, you can register within your product at anytime by selecting Help>Registration from your application’s menu toolbar.

Registering online at Adobe.com
