I just wanna ask how to open the default folder again of my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.

This is what happened:

  • First, I connected the USB Plug.

  • The tab says: "connected as a media device", but it opens with Rythmbox. I want to open it on the exact folder like "Playlists" "Pictures" "Videos", but when I plug the USB, the Rythmbox quickly appears.

How do I do it again? I'm not really familiar with Ubuntu because I got used on Windows.
