Adobe is actively working to build apps that run on Windows computers with ARM architecture-based processors.

Are Adobe apps supported on Windows computers that use ARM processors?

Lightroom 4.1 runs natively on Windows computers that use ARM processors. We are testing and optimizing other apps for these new processors.

When does Adobe plan to release apps for ARM devices?

Lightroom is our first app to run natively on Windows devices with ARM processors. We are working to ensure that our other apps run natively on these devices, but don't have release dates for all our apps yet. We plan to release a native version of Photoshop in 2021. 

We will update this document when more details are available.

Are there beta apps that I can use?

Currently, a beta version of Photoshop is available with native compatibility. Learn more about Photoshop and Windows ARM processor compatibility.

We will update this document as more beta versions with native compatibility become available.
