I've recently upgraded (via fresh install, not the upgrade menu) to 20.04 from 18.04. One of the new features I'm interested in is the "starred" option in Files, because it puts whatever you star above the bookmarks section.
The problem is, the drive Ubuntu is installed on is used exclusively for programs, while all my media is on a separate internal drive. I'd like to star specific folders, since I use them over the system folders (i.e. Documents, downloads, etc.) but there is no option. I followed instructions to add them to settings>search>search locations>other, but the folders can't be added, so they can't be starred. Or at least that's my understanding.
This is a fresh install, so it's entirely possible there's something else I haven't installed yet, or a permission I need to change somewhere, that will allow this, but Google is being no help, and I saw no similar questions.
