Icons of mounted devices on desktop

Post by RunningCat » Mon Apr 15, 2019 7:21 am

Hi

When I plug in a USB device, I get automatically a new icon for this device on the desktop.

Is it possible the get automatically a new icon on the panel instead of the desktop?

Thanks
Linux Mint 19-1 Cinamon 64-Bit

Hardf to say exactly with no system info, esp. the DE, but you should be able to put something like "Places" on the panel.

Just booted a cinnamon VB and I see add to panel; removable drives, it appears as enabled by default?

although this would still take two clicks to get to your USB, I don't see the point.
