Sometimes even despite using Adobe’s free trial downloads to try out the software before buying, customers may wish to return an Adobe product or exchange for something different instead – say swapping the CC Photography bundle or returning an individual CC tool and getting the 2020 “All Apps” plan instead (which includes 22 applications instead of one).
In which case, did you know that Adobe offers a full money-back guarantee on almost all current products? This includes Creative Cloud (CC), Acrobat, Captivate, Photoshop Elements, and so on. This offer applies even after you’ve already downloaded and installed the product on your computer(s). However, only software bought directly from Adobe.com worldwide can take advantage of this refund policy (not purchases from resellers or retailers, and never auction sites).

Often the issue is related to one or the other download managers (DLM) that Adobe uses to deliver its software installers. Over the years and for various tools, they have used the Akamai Download Manager, the Adobe Download Assistant (ADA), the Adobe Application Manager (AAM), and now the Creative Cloud’s Desktop App.
Adobe employs these helper utilities because their downloads are usually large – multiple gigabytes – and download managers can help correct for unreliable Internet connections, and resume a download after it has been paused or unexpectedly broken.
But it turns out there can be interactions between the DLM and configurations of your computer, web browser, anti-virus software, Internet connection, Read more…
