When you plug a usb flash drive in it normally shows the drive on the desktop. Double click on it and it will display the contents.

If you double click the usb drive in your picture it should also open it.

Please don't quote previous posts, it is unnecessary.

Several ways to do this..

Let's try this, do you have an icon on your desktop called "computer"???

Or if you click on Menu do you have a listing named "Places" under all applications?

I do have a folder called ( places ) in ( All Applications ) in ( start menu ) it shows when opened
( documents, music, pictures, video, downloads ) in downloads theres nothing at all. I have Linux Mint 17.3 on this computer now.
I checked around on the net. The only thing i can find is how to put Linux on a USB if your on a Windows Computer, i already no how to do that from a Windows computer. Since iam on a Linux computer i dont no how to put other Linux Distro,s to only try out on my 16 gig USB. Thank,s Chuck
