Copy, Move or Delete Files/Folders

How do you copy or move files to another folder? Also, how do delete files? I erroneously downloaded the wrong Linux Mint 19.2 ISO and extracted it in the same folder (Downloads) and cannot delete them because delete option is greyed out. Cannot move them either.

Re: Reinstall of Linux Mint 19.2 Xfce

I believe there's some confusion regarding the "not mounted" statement. It sounds like you had originally installed to the SSD, so it must have been mounted if the OS was running. Unless, small chance here, you had installed the OS but were still running the Live version from your 8GB USB stick. It...

Re: Reinstall of Linux Mint 19.2 Xfce

It was when I was trying to sort out the swappiness bit. When I selected the drive to alter the setting from 60 to 15 it said the drive was not mounted! I can't wait any longer for some definitive answer as to how to make the mount happen in clean installing LM as I want to take it with me on Monday...

Re: Reinstall of Linux Mint 19.2 Xfce

Further to my comments above, when I do install LM can you please advise me if the ext4 should be mounted and where in the installation routine I should do this. Also, whether it is advisable to mount it. I really only want to do a clean install of LM. TIA

Re: Reinstall of Linux Mint 19.2 Xfce

Hi blueocean. It came with a that 250gb drive but changed it to a 120gb Sandisk SSH drive and 1gb memory. I actually ramped that up to 2gb, which is its maximum. Originally it was a dual boot with Windows 7 and DOS, I removed both of them a few years ago and installed Windows 10. I have two desktop ...
