Lightroom Solo Mode Tip

Screen real estate is very precious, especially on smaller screens such as Laptops. For this Thursday’s Editing Tip, I show you how to save time by activating the Lightroom Solo Mode.

Lightroom Solo Mode

By default, in the Lightroom Develop module, all adjustment tabs expand.

Lightroom default setting expands all the tabs.

While you use only one tab at a time, expanded tabs take lots of the screen area. Therefore, on smaller screens, you need to scroll up and down to find the right adjustment tab.
To solve this time-consuming issue, you need to activate the SOLO Mode; for activation, right-click on any tab and select the Solo Mode.

Activating Lightroom Solo Mode

Right-click on any tab, and select the Solo Mode.

When Solo mode is activated, all the tabs are closed by default. By clicking each tab, you expand it. And when you expand a new tab, the previous one collapses automatically, just like that.

Lightroom solo Mode keeps all tabs collapsed, so, you get more screen real estate.

The Lightroom Solo Mode is a time-saving tip, as you don’t need to scroll and locate the adjustment tabs.
Let me know if you use and like the Lightroom Solo mode.
