Lr has trapped me into some kind of identification feature…

Customer Question
Lr has trapped me...

Lr has trapped me into some kind of facial identification feature that keeps showing faces and won’t let me get back to Lr work. ESC doesn’t work. When I click on Collections to work on one the screen just shows me a lot of faces. I don’t even want this feature! What do do?

Technician's Assistant: Which software or app can I help with?

Adobe Lightroom 6

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Lightroom?

Tried ESC to get out of the Facial Recognition screens that show "Named" and "Unamed". I don't even know what this is and I don't want it. I just want to get into my Collections and work on them and Lr won't let me.
