I imported 26 images from a folder which had a typo in the folder name.  after I did some adjustments to the image I realized I had a typo in the name of the source folder. I corrected the typo in the folder name; now, of course,  images are "lost" ... I have done quite a bit of work to the images and would like not to repeat the effort.   How do I redirect the already imported images & adjustments to the newly renamed folder?

Right click the folder, choose Find Missing Folder, and point Lightroom to the renamed folder. Note that it's possible to rename folders inside Lightroom by right clicking and choosing Rename.

"I right click"

 

where?

 

What do you see when you right-click ... what are the menu items? Tell us the list of menu items (Show us a screen capture would be better, use the "Insert Photos" icon, do not attach files)

But you are showing us clicks on the Menu items at the top of the screen. Not what we asked for. On a Mac, the right-click is actually ctrl-Click, is that what you did?

Can you right click to open context menus other places, like on a thumbnail in Library?

I'm not a Mac user, but I remember that in the past, Mac users had to Control-click to open context menus because Mac mice didn't have a right button, or may be it was for some other reason ...
