which OS are you on and which version of Lightroom are you using ( I assume that you are talking about Lightroom on the desktop)?
My apologies. Yes, I was asking about Lightroom on the desktop. Windows 8.1 64-bit and the latest version of Lightroom.
Saying you have the latest just means you think you have the latest version. What version of LR do you have?
My LR 5.6 signs in automatically every time I start it up, briefly flashing the message Sync On / Signed In.. I don't have to do anything special. Of course my Creative Cloud is already signed in before I start LR, so maybe that is a difference. Does PS also make you sign in each time?
