Lightroom Desktop: How do I display file names in grid display?

How do I display file names in grid display for the cloud based Lightroom CC on my desktop?   I see how to do this on the mobile version, but I'm not having any luck on the desktop one. 

Thanks

Steve

There currently isn't a way to overlay the grid with information as in the mobile clients.  In the Lightroom CC desktop application, leaving the Info panel open (lower right) as you move through the grid is currently the only way to see that information.

That would be then on a file by file basis, right?

Can you confirm whether or not it is now possible to view filenames on the thumbnails in gridview?

Yes. I can confirm the status has not changed since my official post.  If that were to happen the thread would be badged "Implemented" at the top.

I would have thought this was a prerequisite for any cataolguing app! How do I vote to get this feature added?

The Vote button is top right. Filenames don't really mean a lot in cloud computing, so it hasn't been considered a priority, but lots of votes could potentially change that.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Classic: Please permit file names to be added to drid display.

In the square grid, permit adding file names and other information as in LR Classic.

I've just signed, imported several hundred photos, then wanted to locate a photo by name to see if I'd already uploaded it from another folder.  The first thing I looked for was the file name within the grid view, very strange omission.  It would also be good to see the capture dates in the grid view, and be able to group the grid by day etc.

These instructions are for Lightroom Classic. This thread is for Lightroom Desktop - a different product.

So if I have a jpg and a nef of the same photo, there is no way to see the filename to make a distinction? This makes no sense and is a big omission.
