Whenever you update Photoshop and it’s a full version (usually around the Adobe MAX timeframe), you get the option to keep or delete the old version of Photoshop. Always choose to keep it. Fun fact: You can run more than one version of Photoshop on your computer at the same time. The reason you want to keep the old version is twofold: First, in case something doesn’t work, such as a plug-in or extension, or there’s a bug that prevents you from completing your projects, you can open the older version and still get stuff done. The second reason is to verify that all your presets and actions are running okay and have made the trip safely to the new version.
