    Can i start lightroom 6 from the desktop?

    bobX100s

      Hi,I bought LR6 as a one-off purchase rather than the CC version.

       

      However, it's a bit cumbersome to start LR6 as I now have to open the Red "Creative Cloud" icon, wait a little while for it to connect to the internet, then go to the Apps tab and then select LR6.

       

      With LR5 I just had a desktop icon for LR5 I could click directly and it would start straight away.  Can I add an icon for LR6 to my desktop?

          Yes. On windows navigate to:

          C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Lightroom

           

          Select lightroom (the application) and right-click and choose Send to Desktop.

          On Mac OSX launch Finder and go to:

          Macintosh HD >> Applications >>  Adobe Lightroom >> Adobe Lightroom.app

          After launching the app right-click (control-click) on the dock icon and choose:

          Options >> Keep in Dock
