Bug Description

I frequently need to mount a device without actually running the associated application. Like mounting a partition to play a vid from some app history list that point there.
Having a way to only mount a partition will help it.

Forwarded to Unity and requested design input.

I don't believe this is an issue that we need to resolve. In the majority of cases, a user will want to mount a volume because they want to interact with the contents of it. I don't think it's unreasonably to ask the user to click on the volume icon on the Launcher to mount and open it simultaneously. Marking as Opinion until input is received.
