When I plug in a USB stick or an external hard drive the system does absolutely nothing to notify me that this happened. The external device works perfectly fine, it's just that I don't get the classic little sound or pop-up telling me that it was connected.

I was wondering, is there a way to modify this behavior and make it so that the system allows me to chose something like "open in folder" ??

Thanks in advance!


You could install a file manager that offers this feature, such as Nautilus. There is a bug report for adding this feature to Pantheon-Files.
