Will the current version of Photoshop interfere with the operation of CS6?

I have been highly resistant to a subscription service but have finally decided to subscribe to the Photoshop.  However, I still have CS6 running on my computer and have some concern that the new version may in some way interfere with my ability to run CS6.  This is only important if I should decide to cancel my subscription.  I would likely have difficulty reinstalling CS6 under Windows 11 as my copy is one of a series of upgrades dating back to Photoshop 6.0, and I doubt Windows 11 will install the later version.  I doubt the current version of Photoshop would interfere with the operation of CS6 but I need to be sure.  Can anyone help?  Thanks!

First see: https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/cs6-system-requirements.html

You should be able to run both for the time being if indeed, CS6 is still operational on your current system. Reinstalling is always an issue! Depends on the activation servers and other factors so if you've got CS6 installed, leave it alone.

Appreciate your feedback.  I've been hesitant to subscribe as CS6 has sufficed for my needs.  I'm retired and should Adobe significantly increase subscription rates it could pose a problem.  Therefore the concern regarding the possible corruption of CS6 on my computer.

A couple of years ago, I installed my old copy of CS6 (to use a legacy plug-in), and had no problems suing it alongside PS CC.

Thanks for the information!  It's good to know that Photoshop CC and CS6 were compatible.
