I am using the latest version of Lightroom in Creative Cloud on my iMac.  It is not Lightroom Classic.  I simply want to copy some photos to my desktop.  When I use the export command there is no option to select where they export to. I can select the size, file type etc., but I can't find how to set the destination.  Thanks.

That option appears after you click on the Export button. File Explorer or Finder will display and you can choose the desktop as the destination for the exported photo.

Thank you Jim.  For some reason I didn't get that pop up option before -- or maybe I was doing it out of order.  Anyway, I restarted Lightroom and now it does exacltly as you said.  Problem solved.

In the older version of Lightroom you could preset the export map "in the same file" was one of the options. Can you preset the export file?
