Nemo auto-opens on startup to my external usb drive

On Manjaro Cinnamon edition
I have a USB-attached external HDD
Everytime I boot/login, nemo automatically opens to it.
I don’t want that to happen.
Anyone know how to stop it?


Open Nemo and go to

  • Edit”
  • Preferences
  • Behavior
  • Media Handling
  • Deselect:
    • Automatically mount removable media when inserted and on startup
    • Automatically open a folder for automounted media

Thanks! I still want it to automount, I just didn’t want the folder to automatically open. Thankfullty, that behavior is right below the one you showed me:
“Automatically open a folder for automounted media.”
