    LRCat with folded page, no LR Icon


      I recently installed LR CC on a new computer and transferred my LR 5.7 catalog to the new computer. My file hierarchy (PC) is Computer>OS(C:)>Users>Susan>My Pictures>Lightroom.  Inside the "Lightroom" folder I have 2 yellow folders called Lightroom 5 Master Catalog-2 Previews.lrdata and Lightroom Settings.  There is also a white page with the top right corner folded over called Lightroom 5 Master Catalog-2.  If I click on this last one, LR will launch and is up and running. 

      I don't understand why there is no LR icon anymore and it makes me nervous to not have things look like they usually do. 

      Can anyone explain this?

          It should not make any difference to anything as long as the extension is still .lrcat as it should be. I have not had this happen on my Mac but a Windows machine did this on a regular basis with not problems!


          I was told that reinstalling the program sometimes corrects this, but as I said, it shouldn't make any difference.


          Good luck.
