Would really like to see a way to differentiate between edited and not-edited photos.  Either an icon, or preferably a way to filter.  This appears as an option in the iOS app, and in Lightroom Classic CC, but isn't an option on the desktop version of Lightroom CC.

Filtering on edited/non-edited photos is possible with the latest desktop version of Lightroom CC. You can type "edited:" in the search bar and choose from the options that gets listed in the suggestions popup.

But the filter doesn’t work properly. When filterung uneditet pictures on my IPad it shows me a lot of pictures where adjustments were made.

For those pictures the before/after isn‘t available too, it only show the 2 times the same edited picture ass if no changes were made.

Is this a known problem?

So... some of the features that have a nice UI on the phone are "done" on desktop when we can type them in to the command-line ourselves? Great, I guess.

BTW, I just filtered by edited:no and it certainly doesn't update dynamically (which is probably okay because it's frustrating to have a photo disappear as soon as your start editing it) but it's actually pretty unclear when it updates. I cleared the filter status entirely then re-added filters including edited:no and the photos I just edited are still there. What's the deal with that?

I'm sorry for bumbing and old thread but I'm having this issue now with the new 2019 Cloud lightroom, I used to have small icons on the images thumbnails in the square grid so I could easily pick out the edited photos, now that seem to be gone? And the search does not filter thought edits. I can flag and rate my photos but thats not something I always remember when I'm in the workflow.

Also experiencing this. I wonder if it's related to photos being edited in Classic.
