If you’re like me (and I know I am) you don’t love having a bunch of unnecessary stuff loaded when you don’t need it. Like Adobe’s Creative Cloud thingy. It can drain your battery (not by a lot, but still) and clutter up your menu bar.
Also, according to the Little Snitch app, this thing is pinging over dozen different IPs and domains across the interwebs at times. I mean, I understand pinging a couple, but this feels a little extreme.
Anyway. It gets loaded from here:
Run this in Terminal to disable it for your user:
launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchAgents/com.adobe.AdobeCreativeCloud.plist
If you find you miss it, bring it back thusly:
launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/com.adobe.AdobeCreativeCloud.plist
You can also delete that .plist after running launchctl unload to shut its shenanigans down even further. I haven’t done that, though, so proceed at your own risk on that one.
