Windows 10 64bit.
Used to work before classic, but now it does nothing. Have to use right click, "Remove Photo.." which takes more steps.

Just trying to be clear... is the photo in a collection or in all photographs? Can you list the steps necessary to reproduce the issue?

Try this workaround to see if it works for you. If not, delete the config.lua file afterwards.

  1. Choose Edit > Preferences.
  2. In the Preferences dialog, go the Presets tab.
  3. In the Presets tab, click the Show Lightroom Presets Folder button. The root preset folder opens in the File Explorer. 
  4. In the File Explorer, navigate into the Lightroom folder.
  5. Go to the link and download the config.lua file. Copy the downloaded config.lua file into the Lightroom folder mentioned in the previous step.
  6. Relaunch Lightroom Classic CC.
The System Info dialog (Help > System Info) should display the config.lua flags entry as shown below:

AgView.disableDirect2D = true

It was in Folders.
Not sure what changed, but this morning it is working as expected. Same with the other problem I posted ((changing time by set hours, as in time zone correction, not working). Works fine this AM.
I'll reply to this thread if it happens again and will try to capture what led to it happening.
By the way, using Win 10 Pro, 64 bit and had not rebooted (AFAIK, but you know Windows) since it happened before.
