I don't know what I misclicked or something I was trying to find copy settings to copy a dng file. But, when I close the lightroom classic cc and opened it again. The photos aren't previewing in develop section and I CAN'T EDIT THEM EITHER. I can't click the copy settings and such. I even tried to relaunch them again but it didn't work. please help me out!!!!

What flags show on the photo in the Library module?  Also, it would really help if people would indicate whether they are running in Windows or macOS.

Shouldn't closing and relaunching LR neutralize all filters?  It does for me.

It doesn’t neutralize flags, stars, picks, color ratings.  Those are in the XMP files.  Otherwise, LR would be useless as a DAM.

Of course it doesn't neutralize the individual image ratings. It sounded to me like you were suggesting that the search filters were interfering with their ability to view images in the Develop Module.

I’m not the OP.  I just suggested the OP look at the image flags on the undevelopable images using the Library module.  If, for example, the image has a delete Flag, it doesn’t let you Develop it.

Also indicate which version of Lightroom you are running.

If the Library module seems to work OK but not the Develop module, it many times one of two things.  Either the folder/files are now "missing" due to some action outside of LR such as in Finder or File Manager.  The second common issue is that LrC has not been able to validate your license in a long time either due to not being connected to the internet for several weeks or your login credentials were changed either on the Adobe Servers or in LrC
