Opened LR 6.0 today (first-time user). Imported 3 images, selected one using Navigator and it appeared correctly on Navigator preview window. Switched to Develop and image did not appear on main preview screen, what appeared is a dark-blue overlay-type screen with a reversed corner X in white. Correct image remained in the smaller Navigator pane.
When I attempt to switch screens with the icons below the main image area, it will not switch to a full-frame, it will only switch to a split screen dividing the screen in half horizontally or vertically--showing a portion of the actual image with a same-size blue box in the pane.
I've been all over View and Window trying to find how to 'turn-off' the blue preview with no success. What am I missing? Thanks. Mike
Please go to the preferences of the Lightroom. Go to the performance tab and uncheck the option which says"Use Graphics Processor".
Restart the Lightroom it should be fixed.
This is a GPU related issue. Please update your GPU drivers from the manufacturers website.
In the mean while, disabling "Use Graphics Processor" (Preferences > Performance), should help load the Develop module.

Thank you for such a prompt solution and explanation. I'll reset prefs
tonight and update drivers tomorrow. Thx.
