GNOME 3 How to not display mounted drives on the desktop

Post by tinker123@gmail.com » 2020/05/29 21:13:53

I rebooted my CentOS 7 box, with the GNOME 3 default deskotp.

Now there are icons for mounted drives on the desktop

They weren't there before.

How do I make those icons go away, but keep the mountings?
CentOS 7.6.180

Check in Applications -> Accessories -> Tweaks -> Desktop for something inadvertently selected (for starters).
Remember - importing/building packages will likely "byte you in the butt" come update time, long after you'd forgotten you did that! Use repos whenever possible.
