Mounted drives on the right

Post by condowax » Sat Sep 04, 2010 1:28 am

I,ve looking for a way to have the mounted drives to appear automatically on the right side of my desktop but couldn't find anything. I don't want to move all icons to the right, I know theres a way to do this, just the mounted drives. Does anyone know of a way to have drives appear on the right and the rest of icons to stay on the left?

Drag and drop the icons to where you want them. I've just carried out the experiment by dragging and dropping the icons for three drives from the left of the screen to the right and then doing a restart. The icons remained where i placed them.

Uuummm....

That sounds really complicated.

Surely there must be a simpler way.... :mrgreen:

Drag and drop works for drives that are known the OS. If I connect a new external hard drive or flash drive, the icon will appear on the left. Same with CDs and DVDs. What I want is that ALL driver known or uknown by the system show the icon on the right.
