I can find nothing whatsoever on Adobe's own site or on any forum here to do with 4K (or better) monitors and whether these 'work' with any version of Lightroom or any other Adobe photo app. Surely I am not searching intelligently? Yet no conceivable search terms yield any useful results. Meanwhile I am increasingly fed-up with the rendition of my high-res photos by a standard video 'card' on a once-excellent but standard-res Benq screen. Help!

Thanks everyone!

I’m not sure exactly what you’re looking for them to be considered “working” but I use a 5k screen and everything works as expected. A bit slower than a standard res screen, because there’s more pixels to render, but otherwise no issues.

I use two 4K screens and Lightroom Classic is happy with that too. Lightroom desktop (you only write ‘latest’ as version, so we have no idea what version of Lightroom you use…) only uses one screen, but it isn’t bothered in any way by the presence of the other one.

Thankyou Victoria. As rendition is already a touch on the slow side in my current set-up, this looks like a 'project' for a new graphics card / PC. (Windows 11 anyone? :( )

Good luck finding a graphics card, I've been trying to get a new one for a year. If you buy a new PC you may have better luck (especially from high end folks like Puget). I personally wouldn't put in Windows 11 yet, but would make sure anything you buy passes their compatibility test.
