On Ubuntu 17.10 there's no longer link to root partition in sidebar, called "Computer" on earlier Ubuntu versions. Is there any way to add "Computer" item to Nautilus sidebar?


You'll find "Computer" under "Other locations" at the bottom of the sidebar.

enter image description here

Once you have opened "Computer" (/) you can bookmark the location by pressing ctrl+d to make it always present in the sidebar.

  • Better than nothing. A shame there isn't a gsettings toggle somewhere. – Tim Dec 13 '17 at 19:10
  • Bookmarking, of course. Who had thought that bookmarking directory would put it in sidebar? And I can rename it too. Thanks! – joshas Dec 13 '17 at 21:55
  • <kbd>ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>d</kbd>doesn't work in my case and the button Bookmark this location is greyed out. – Pierre François Mar 18 '18 at 15:07
  • @PierreFrançois Strange! Try switching back to Xorg from Wayland. – pomsky Mar 18 '18 at 15:25
