When I insert a USB drive, it is auto-mounted and my file manager opens two windows – focussed on home and the USB drive. When I insert a Raspberry Pi SD card, Nemo opens four windows, a pair for the boot and a pair for the root partitions – which is especially annoying.

Is there a way to control this? I would like ONLY the window for the mounted partition(s), and not the window focussed on the home directory.

I know there is some control in Nemo, by selecting Edit → Preferences and scrolling to Media Handling. It does not give the fine control I am seeking.

I am using Linux Mint 19.3 which comes with Nemo 4.4.2.
