I've been using Windows 7 on an HP for years. photoshop has worked great. Now it won't open my older Photoshop and says to install new version I have to have Windows 10. 

 

Windows 10 will destroy this computer. 

 

How can I reinstall older Photoshop version with Windows 7?

Hi

Assuming you're using Photoshop version 21.2.4, you just need to downgrade Camera Raw to version 12.4, see my reply here

You can't upgrade, you need to purchase a subscription to the Creative Cloud

you can't... you need version 19 to stay with Windows 7 and Adobe dropped that ages ago

yes if its a 64bit version of Windows 7 with the sp then it should run but he also will need to disable autoupdates in the Adobe CC app to stop it trying to upgrade Photoshop... which fyi will download and fail if he doesn't
