ChromeOS: Mount an SFTP Connection in Files
Occasionally on ChromeOS there are things I'd like to do which historically have been available, due to changes in the OS and time stop them working now.
One of these things was using the Files app to connect to remote SSH servers.
I was greeted with the following message while opening the Terminal app and SSH to a local server.
That Random pro tip #4 was something I wasn't aware of
It seems on the Terminal App there is an option to Mount to Files
Clicking on this opens a new Tab with a Mounted message which says keep the tab open
If the Files App is opened the Imac is now mounted as a drive
The mounted drive can now we accessed via the files app.
I've put this as a video here.
This was something I didn't know existed, I'm using Cros117 at the time fo writing
It would be great if this could be built right into files moving forward however I'm happy it's there.
