Is it possible to put photoshop or any adobe software on a flash drive and run it with the ability to save files? and if it is, would it be againist Adobe's terms of service and would my plan be violated? I'm mainly talking about if I want to get some work done and my primary setup is a desk top which isn't portable. Could I run the software on a library computer or friends laptop?

The only way to run it on someone else's computer (library or friend) is to install it with admin rights and a compatible operating system as you would on your own computer and activate it.

For those in the future that find this thread, this is wrong. You can run Adobe apps off a bootable USB drive. I run Catalina as my main OS, but have a bootable drive running High Sierra to use my CS6 Suite. Except for the slower initial OS boot speeds, the apps run just fine. As an occasional user, I have no need or desire to upgrade to CC and the monthly subscription costs.
