You cannot disable the history functionality. That is a key part of the program due to LR's non-destructive editing.
You cannot uninstall the CC Desktop app. However, you can choose to not have it running.
The logic you just tried to suggest can't be right. If you can clear your history while your working and it retains all the adjustments clear through and export, and even after you shut the program down and reopen it, then the history function is not needed at all... The truth is that you need it to upload to CC. CC is not a needed program because it didn't exist prior to the latest version of this software. The only reason it is needed is to store data online... So that Adobe can get copies to farm out people's work and personal information. A practice that should be outlawed, as theft. I am currently seeking alternative software solutions for the issue. I used to trust Adobe, and Microsoft, now I can only trust them to spam my computer and steal my personal information for profit. It makes me sick. Sad that they have all become Hackers, no better than anyone that steals other people's identities for profit.
Disabling CC at startup doesn't stop all that junk from starting up later and spamming your pc.

I'm curious ... what junk and spam does it show on your PC? I've never seen this.
Regarding the history: No offense, but you seem to have missed the point in how LR non-destructive development works and what the idea behind it actually is.
I'm not here to argue over what I'm sure many here will call the greatest invention since the wheel. You answered my question, lightroom is not going to allow me to disable the history feature, note will Adobe allow anyone to remove their spamware. Thank you for your time.
I would like to point out that Unreal 4 Game Engine uses only half as much memory as Lightroom, matching lightroom only during project loading...
If you'd like to get help with some issues regarding LR, we are happy to help. However, we'd need to know what your issue exactly is - comparing apples and oranges does not really describe an issue.
If you are just venting, let us know. Most of us are trying to help real LR problems in our spare time - we don't work for Adobe - and it would be a waste of time in that case.
History is stored in the LR database so you can roll back to a particular point in the editing.
The existence of history in the database shouldn't cause lag as the current settings are only what is needed to render the current image and those are held in memory, not computed from the database by scanning history every time you move a slider.
For example, adjusting a slider like Exposure over and over still results in just one Exposure value stored and applied to the image, even if every adjustment to the Exposure slider results in a separate history step.
Using Spotting or Gradients or Adjustment Brushes or Radial Filters actually add new adjustments to the set of adjustments being applied to the image at a particular point in time. Adding more of these adjustments can make LR slower, but it's not the number of history steps, it's the number of adjustments.
History is not sent to Adobe, it remains in your catalog which is stored locally on your computer.
Lots of people see Lightroom slowing down and they come to the conclusion (incorrectly) that they know what the cause is.
Large amounts of history stored by Lightroom does not cause Lightroom to slow down (except if you are using lots of brushing and/or lots of spot healing, and then technically it's not the presence of a lot of history that causes the slowdown, it's the amount of calculations that the CPU has to do to render the image).
So the fact that Adobe Creative Cloud (32 bit)
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 64-bit
Adobe CEF Helper (32 bit)
Adobe CEF Helper (32 bit)
Adobe IPC Broker (32 bit)
Application Frame Host (Associated with Lightroom)
CCLibraries (32 bit)
Creative Cloud (32 bit)
CCXProcess (32 bit)
Core Sync (32 bit)
all mostly spam... and intrusive Data Farming Garbage using up my processor all at once might be the issue? REMOVE YOUR GARBAGE WARE FROM THE PRODUCTS and the product might run right...
What's really sad is that I can't even listen to Pandora as I work, without the music skipping and lagging out because Adobe can't extract their head from their Rear Ends long enough see that their spam isn't making our experiences better. And rest assured as soon as I find an alternative that I am comfortable with that doesn't lag me out I will drop Adobe like a Hot Rock.
And just so you don't think I am someone that has a trash PC, I run an I7, twin GTX 970's with Dual SLI Bridges Giving 8 additional Gigs of Internal Ram, an MSI Z170A Gaming M7 (OVERCLOCKED), with 32 Gigs of DDR 4. With a 150 Mbps Internet Connection. So Clearly is my hardware should be able to handle anything you throw at it. But for some reason... OH ya, between you morons, hitting me with 10 processess, Nvidia spamming me with another 10 processes, and Windows 10 spamming me with 12 totally new Data Farming and Intrusive Processes, that no matter how hard you try can never be fully disabled.
So ya, maybe my processor is getting worked kinda hard. What do I need to run to get your garbage to not lag... NASA?
