Thread: Removable device notification in Dolphin

    Default Removable device notification in Dolphin

    Hi,
    I'm running Leap 15.1 with KDE Plasma 5.12.8 and Dolphin 18.12.3. In the past removable devices showed up in the devices section on the left of the Dolphin screen. By clicking on it one could mount it or unmount it before removal. This feature has disappeared on my system recently. So when I plug in a USB stick I get three action choices of which I choose the one that starts another instance of Dolphin. I find that less handy than what I used to do. Is there a setting in the system settings to go back to what was before? What did I miss? Thanks for any hint!

    Maybe you've inadvertently hidden the "Removable Devices" section - right click on the panel and choose "Show Hidden Places" from the context menu.

    You're right. I must have done. Why is it a 'hidden place'?
    Thanks so much for your hint!

    Because not everybody likes the junk that may show up there.
