    Question "Places" as in previous version...

    Hi.
    How to implement the selection "Places" to inspect contents of other connected data storage; as USB drives, optical media, hard drives ?

    There's an official (or perhaps better described as approved) GNOME extension available which adds "Places" to the top bar - Places Status Indicator.

    There's a screenshot on that web page so you can see what you are installing before you actually do.

    You need to install chrome-gnome-shell, and that's for any browser. Then restart the browser and you will be able to install the extension.
