Hei,

I am also looking to install Windows 10 (from Windows 7) but I need to know if there are any compatibility issues outstanding for Elements 8.

Are there users who can answer this query please.

Cheers Ron

Thanks Akash,

I can understand that PSE 8 has not received an official tick as compatible with Windows 10 but I am sure that there are users out there who may have the answer to 'does it work or not?' So I hope for more information. Should I post my query somewhere else?

Cheers Ron

As per the System Requirements it is not supposed to work on Windows 10 System requirements | Adobe Photoshop Elements

There were not many Queries about the same.

We have some users able to use it on Windows 10,but again its not supported officially.So it may or may not work.

I've just installed Windows 10 from Windows 7. It recognises that PhotoShop Elements 8 is there but won't load the Edit Function. A Downlaod was offered for the Organise Function and this now seems to work okay - though I never use it.  So far no download has been offered for Edit.

I don't think I'm going to spend any more time on trying to make it work. So far it seems to be the only problem with the Windows 10 upgrade.

Thanks for posting 'all OK'. Like you, I think that this is the last software 'concern' that I had but I am going to wait for a few more months before upgrading to W10.

Recently installed the W7 to W10 upgrade and PSE 8 functions OK. Maybe the latest Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3116908) has resolved some issues.

i got it to work on windows 10. Only issue i'm having it there is a pit of lag when i'm drawing. I know its not supported but, can you guys at least make a patch so it is compatible with windows 10. There are users like me who are scraping by and cant afford the new Photoshop elements. don't know about you all but i don't got $100 to spare at all.

It doesn't seem right that you spend (what I consider a lot of money) on software that isn't supported later on. Greed is going to be the downfall of the US

I Completely agree with that Statement, there should be a law against it.
