  • 25 June 2024 It's Lightroom update time again! See What’s New in Lightroom Classic 13.4, Mobile & Desktop (June 2024)? for the bug fixes and new lens profiles. Warning... this is a minor dot release and does NOT fix some of the bugs introduced in 13.3, so if you reverted to 13.2 due to bugs (e.g. sync issues), we'd suggest you stay there for now.

Lightroom Version Number
LR Classic/12.5
Operating System
  1. Windows 11
I have been using LR for a few years. This is a new one for me.....Whenever I click on the Develop tab a 2nd Navigator window suddenly opens up on to of the other windows (File #1). Then, if I actually try to edit, then the "edits" show up in the smaller window and nothing can be done from there (file #2). In File 2 I clicked on the crop tool and it showed up in the smaller window. Obviously, I have restarted several times. Any help you can give would be appreciated. LJ

You have "Show" turned on in menu Window -> secondary display

Thank you for your prompt reply. I appreciate your time, but that option is not turned on. However, I may have found the problem. I have used a secondary display but it required adjustment of the high DPI settings in order to work properly on 2 monitors. I did not return it to the normal setting when not using 2 monitors. Once I adjusted it back, it now seems to be working correctly. Thank you again.
