At import, how can I get LR6 to recognise only the images of the selected folder I desire imported, & not the potentially hundreds of images in subfolders of that folder, which I am currently having to go through & de-select everytime I import? This is very time consuming.

There is a tick box 'include subfolders' in the import screen, just under source

Thank you Cerianthus. Having scrolled down to find the required folder I never saw it, as it only appears when folder is clicked, & is at the top of the sidebar.

Much appreciated.
