What has happened to my old Lightroom put it back I dont like and cant use the new version. I use tethered now I dont have it. Looks like I'll have to jump ship
It sounds like you've installed Lightroom (Cloud Based Ecosystem) instead of Lightroom Classic. Lightroom Classic is where you tether. Go to your Creative Cloud app and install Lightroom Classic. You can also use the Creative Cloud app to uninstall the Lightroom version you have now.
