comment How can I mount drives whilst booting
Sorry, I didn't search long enough - it is indeed a duplicate. Thanks all for responses; fstab was the filename I forgot, but I'll have to experiment with the syntax.

comment How do I restore Dolphin instead of Gwenview as default file manager
Many thanks,@Drac Noc. I had looked at File Associations and one or two other options in System Settings but these did not help. I had also tried uninstalling Gwenview but it reasserted itself as default on re-installation. This time, after re-installation, I went to Default Apps, changed the default from Dolphin to Gwenview and back again, and it seems to have got the message.

comment Can I free permissions on a USB drive?
Thanks Mike whatever for rewriting my question in a more logical order. I'm sorry about the history, but I don't know what info is needed by anyone kind enough to help me. Thanx Ilarsona, the drive is indeed NTFS which explains why the Mac will read and not write. I will get another drive for the Mac as space is short. I'd still like to know how to make any folder or device fully accessible to all in Linux.
