Lightroom Desktop: Find photos not in any album?

Is there any way to find photos that are not in an album. I have 20k photos on my lightroom and know that so many are not in an album. This is because there is one-tap button(delete) to remove photos from albums so I use to quickly clean albums for photo selection.

You've posted this question in the Lightroom desktop forum. If this is the app you are indeed asking about, simply click on All Photos (to set the source for the search), then click in the Search bar (top centre), select the "Album" facet from the drop-down list, then scroll to the bottom of the resulting list of albums and you'll find a "Not in any album" entry. Clicking on that will populate the grid will all photos not yet assigned to any album.

If your album list is very long, you can shortcut that by typing "album: not" in the search bar and that should show the "Not in any album" immediately at or near the top of the list.

Perfect! I was making the mistake of not choosing all photos as the source.
