    Question Removable folder not showing up in Steam library folders

    When I go to make a new steam library folder, the “removable” folder under “media” doesn’t show up. So, what do I do? I am using ubuntu 16.04

    I don't understand what you mean by "removable" and "media." There is a root folder, /media. It holds, for example, removable drives or USB sticks.

    Is that what you are talking about?

    It is likely that that folder is hidden. In *NIX, all files that are hidden start with a dot, like .this. That will not show up normally.

    In whatever file manager you use, open that folder and press CTRL-H. That should make the folder you're looking for show up and say howdy.
