"Mendeley Desktop" has been discontinued and has been replaced with "Mendeley Reference Manager".
Elsevier announcement: "As of September 1, 2022, users will no longer be able to download and install Mendeley Desktop software. Existing users, who have already installed Mendeley Desktop, will continue to be able to sign into, use and sync their Mendeley Desktop."
The new Mendeley Reference Manager program has a number of issues, particularly the Mendeley Cite add-in for Microsoft Word. At this time, we are not recommending Mendeley Reference Manager and suggest using Zotero or EndNote instead.
See below links for guidance on importing your Mendeley library to Zotero or EndNote:
