As per title, I decided I wanted to remove my external drive icon (the one that is shown, usually, on the desktop) on my mac, but now I'm not able to put it back.
The problem is not due to the finder preferences, as external drive IS ticked.
I remember doing it from the terminal with a command, but now I'm not able to revert that change.
I did try with the following commands with no luck:
defaults write com.apple.finder ShowHardDrivesOnDesktop -bool true defaults write com.apple.finder ShowRemovableMediaOnDesktop -bool true
from this answer: How to show Hard Disk icon on Desktop via Terminal?
and I've also tried with this command:
defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop -bool true; killall Finder
But neither worked.
Any help with this? I just want the drive icon to be on the desktop when the drive is connected, nothing more
Thanks for any help
