does creative clould work with windows 8?. I see windows 7 as a minimum requirement with no mention of windows 8
Welcome to Adobe Community .
Minimum requirements means that you have to have these as the minimum configuration to install the Adobe Products . You can surely go ahead and install the product on a windows 8 PC and it should work fine.
Creative Cloud is certified compatible with Windows 8 except for a couple of applications (Captivate, Presenter, etc.) though these generally work fine for most customers.
