Can anyone tell me whether Lightroom 3 will work with MS Windows 11, please?

Thanks in anticipation

It took quite a bit of fighting to get Lightroom 4.4 to work with Windows 10 so I wouldn't hold your breath. The main problem was scaling until I found the right setting in Windows (everything was so small you couldn't see the icons or read the menus). Even now turn the "lightbox" feature (where you make everything black except the image) doesn't work properly (half the image goes black too).

I'm starting to investigate alternatives to Lightroom which is a shame because I really like it. I just do not want to get locked-in to a subscription system which will be fine until I cannot afford it...

Best wishes, Kris.

I have no issues with Lightroom 3.6 and Win10. Is Win11 really that different?
