I currently have Windows7 and would like to upgrade to 9 or 10.

f I send my PC's specs, can you tell me if the Adobe Photoshop CS2 loaded into my PC will be compatible with a newer Windows?

Adobe Photoshop CS2 was released in 2005, and it is not officially supported on newer versions of Windows. While it may still run on Windows 7, it is not guaranteed to work properly on Windows 10.
Please note that running an outdated software like Adobe Photoshop CS2 on a newer version of Windows may cause compatibility issues and potentially compromise the security of your computer. It is recommended to use the latest version of the software, which is Adobe Photoshop 2022, to ensure compatibility and security.
Based on the specifications you provided, your computer meets the minimum system requirements for running Windows 10.
However, please note that the performance of your computer may be affected by upgrading to Windows 10 with only 4GB of RAM, and you may experience slower performance compared to running Windows 7. You may want to consider upgrading your RAM to at least 8GB to improve performance.
