What part of appearance you want to customize ? Also, you have themes, which can change the look of it’s user interface. :slight_smile:

I want to customize the left pane of Files.

“Customise” how?

Can you please be more clear, and state what you want to achieve?

What drives and file system it displays.

So you want to hide a drive? You can do that in Disks (look under mount options)

Not “Hide”. “Display”. It doesn’t display things in any useful manner.

So an attached drive is missed? Again check disks

How do I insert screenshots here?

I don’t see how Disks helps in configuring Files. Please explain.

If I select to “Show in user interface”, then I just get another of the same root system. The other drive already is checked.

I’m still not really sure what the problem is here, can you tell us about your drives and how you expect them to be shown?
