I'm a long term user of Lightroom Classic and today I am trying to review Lightroom (CC) and Lightroom for web to see if either have anything useful to add to my workflow.

The problem: everywhere including in this very forum I see Adobe and pretty much everyone else referring to a product called Lightroom CC.... yet when I look for this on my system I can only find Lightroom Classic and Lightroom.

When I open 'Lightroom' and look at the about page it says it is called 'Lightroom' not 'Lightroom CC'

My question: is the 'Lightroom' program/app that I am seeing actually what everyone including Adobe seems to be referring to as 'Lightroom CC'?  If not, where do I find Lightroom CC?

The thing with the turquoise icon with rounded corners - that is what Adobe now call "Lightroom", and what they previously called "Lightroom CC", and what some people call "Lightroom Cloudy". It is the newer cloud-dependent application that has similar features to Lightroom iOS, Lr Android, lrWeb. It may be useful if you want to access photos on a second computer, just like you might access photos synced from Lightroom Classic on your phone or tablet.

Real Lightroom is called Lightroom Classic and has a blue icon with square corners.

Great, thanks for clearing that up for me... is this a recent change then... is that why I see so many references to Lightroom CC all over the Adobe site, they just haven't got around to changing the webpages yet?

Yes, in the last 2-3 months. They have changed some stuff - they dropped the CC from this forum's URL before the change. for example - but their own pages are inconsistent. I'm not sure anyone knows which is which anymore!
