With all the panels in Lightroom, it can often be difficult to work with them if they are all open because you have to scroll up and down to find the one you want. Or, you have to keep opening and closing the various panels. What a waste of time! There’s a fix for this. Solo mode can auto-collapse any panel that you have open just by going to another panel. This makes viewing your options and switching to other panels very easy.
All you have to do is go to the bottom of either the right or left panel, right click and select “solo mode”. That’s it. Do it now and never go back. It will make your life in Lightroom much easier.
