I use Windows Photos to browse large amounts of photos. In it I right click, then open in, and it gives me a choice of EVERY single associated program on my computer, EXCEPT LRCC. How about you fix that. It's a terrible PITA that ONLY your program doesn't work this way.

Lightroom does not 'open' images. It opens a Managed Catalog.  Double clicking on an .mcat file opens Lightroom automatically.

Essentially, Lightroom Desktop for the Cloud Ecosystem is an image management tool which has an internal imaging editor.  It is not designed for ad-hoc one-off editing.
