I have used Elements 11 for years. I would like to be able to use the version I purchased on another maching (still have disks and serial #). Just gifted the 2020 Elements and want to put on my main computer.  

 

Question is: If I install 2020, what happens to the version 11? 

Do I need to deactivate or delete to be able to use it on another computer?

Can you load version 11 on another computer if it isn't fully deleted from 1st computer.  

 

Thanks for your help!

You are allowed two activations of installations of Photoshop Elements.  In order to use on a third computer, just deactivate (no need to uninstall) on one of the other computers.

 

You can have many versions of Photoshop Elements installed on a computer, as they are independent programs, each with their own organizers.  There is no need to uninstall old versions unless you wish to do so.

v11 and v2020 will co-exist on the same computer with no problems.

Do I need to deactivate or delete to be able to use it on another computer?

Depends.  You can activate v11 on maximum of two computers at a time.  Same with v2020

Can you load version 11 on another computer if it isn't fully deleted from 1st computer.

Yes, that's not a problem.
