Lightroom CC: How can I change dpi and other sizing? I cannot find "export"

I have Lightroom CC and am new to it. I cannot find a way to change the dpi. A brief glance at on-line info (haven't had a chance to go through tutorials yet) says you can do this with "export." I cannot find "export" anywhere. I can only find "Save to" which sees to save everything at 240dpi, and I can't change that -- can only change the pixel size across longest side as a custom sizing.

Export is a button in the lower left corner of the grad display7; it is below the listing of your file tree.

The Export button isn't in LR CC, only Classic.  "Save to" seems to be the only way to export JPEGs in LR CC and the options do look very limited.  I've not experimented but it must use the apect ratio of the image to work out the number of pixels down.

Lightroom CC does not have this export functionality. Please add your voice to this thread: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/is-lightroom-cc-a-nonprofessional-version-of-...

Do remember that ppi (not dpi) is only an instruction for the printer. There is no physical difference between an image of say 6000 x 4000 pixels at 300 ppi and an image of 6000 x 4000 pixels at 240 ppi.

Image sizing in export window allows you to set it.

Yes, but changing that setting doesn't really modify the size of the image at all. The image still has the same number of pixels regardless of what number you put in that box. That number won't affect the quality of a print in any way.
