Sadly that didnt do the trick. I also had to create a new sign-in...I clearly am having issues with Catalina, lol! This is so frustrating. I really only us my computer to edit photos and now I cant do that.
I just wish to insert a thought here, I recall that when I updated my iMac to Catalina I was presented with with many popups requesting to allow Lightroom and Photoshop to have access to certain files and folders on my computer. As far as I can recall I clicked the allow button do you have any recollection of this?
