How to access "Computer" It should be available from the Unity launcher, if not try clicking on the desktop > go > computer. This will bring up all the drives connected to the computer.

If you would like a shortcut to access "computer" you can install "tweak tool" from the Software centre which gives you this option.

Hope this helps.

How can I start Unity launcher from 12.10? Thanks for your help. – Kevin Liao Mar 8 '13 at 16:45
The launcher will already be running (default), it's the bar at the side with all the application launchers on, You may have to "push" your mouse against the left edge of your screen. – Ross Fleming Mar 8 '13 at 17:45

ClassicMenu Indicator also can help you.To install it open your terminal and type as

sudo dpkg -i classicmenu-indicator_0.07_all.deb
