Can anyone help me please? Where do i need to go to in Linux mint 19.3,o find the area in mint, that is the same as ( my computer ) in windows to see what is connected to my desk top computer with mint19.3 XFCE? thank you
Thank you. I understand. I just did not know where mint might have that located in Mint. Thank you very much.That'd be your file manager. In Mint, that should be Nemo. It's helpfully named "Files" in Mint.
You can navigate your stored files that way. You're mostly interested (probably) in /home/<user>, where <user> is your username. There's also the root directory, which would simply be / and it's where you'll find bin, boot, etc, and you generally don't need to mess around in there a whole lot.
But, you're looking to see what is 'connected'? For that, you probably want to see stuff like connected hard drives:
Though connected devices may include /cdrom or /dev...
This is a good time to point out that Linux isn't Windows. Things aren't where, or how, you might expect them to be.
In Mint XFCE it uses Thunar as the file manager and it should be an icon in your pannel. and in the menu under file manager.Thank you. I understand. I just did not know where mint might have that located in Mint. Thank you very much.
I am looking for ( which it may not exist ), but when I connect my I phone to my pc that it reconises that it is there on the computer.I think we may not be exactly sure what your asking for. Are you looking for hardware connections of file connections?
If you looking for files in XFCE the file manager is Thunar. If for hardware connections such as discs/ Usbs etc you go to Thunar and click on the computer tab at the top of the left hand list. If your looking for running processes you go to Menu >Accessories>Task Manager. So tell us a little more about what it is your looking for? If your looking for driver information you can go to setting page found at the top of the main Menu. It show about everything that is configurable on your system.
