In addition to the ability to pinch zoom via the trackpad, this feature should also be filed under ‘why wasn’t this already a thing?’
Don’t get me wrong, this feature isn’t exactly a core function. The functional part of it has always worked fine, but the inability to do this simple task has always made me feel a bit goofy around my Mac and Windows friends.
What feature is this?
The ability to rename USB and SD drives attached to your Chromebook.
With a simple right click or CTRL+E, you can rename a whole volume attached to your Chromebook. Again, this is a simple thing that you’d figure was doable before now, but it hasn’t been. You can check out the commit here.
For me personally, this will be of great use. With Chromebooks usually having limited storage, USB drives and SD cards are still very, very important for Chrome OS users. Beyond that, however, there are uses for small USB drives and SD cards when you are dealing with client-facing work. Being able to name certain drives to distinguish them one from the other is a pretty important part of that process.
There have been many times in the past I’ve had to sheepishly ask a coworker to rename a drive for me since my Chromebook couldn’t do it. I’m glad to say that I won’t need to do that any longer after this change hits the stable channels of Chrome OS.
And for that, I am grateful.
