Lightroom Classic: How To Cut The On-Screen Clutter

After Friday’s tutorial for more advanced users, I thought today I’d share one for some newer users, and it how to unclutter your screen by strategically hiding the four panels that eat up screen space and make your editing experience look more complicated than it needs to be.
