Question: Trying to switch libraries in Photos

Hi,


I just upgraded to High Sierra.


I have three Photo libraries (local libraries on my Mac). My current one happened to be the oldest as I was looking at old photos last week. When I try to switch libraries to the newest one, it won't let me. It asks me if I want to switch and I het "switch", then the same messages comes up again asking me if I want to switch.


Can anyone help?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

Your question is not clear




You can switch libraries by holding down the option (alt) key while launching Photos and selecting the library you want to open from the resulting select library window or you can double click on the library you want to open

Yes, when I double click the library it asks if I want to switch, but just keeps giving me the same message over and over even though I select “switch”. I was successful finally getting it to switch by exiting Photos then restarting it while holding the option key.

Thanks. Double clicking the library did not work. It kept giving me a response asking if I wanted to “switch” libraries. I would click “switch” then it would come back with the same message asking me if I wanted to switch. This goes on and on and it never switches. I did try the option key and was able to switch.
