    Not big of a problem. But it should read in Projects, "On Drive", not "On Disk", I think.

    Needless to say that we are living in an age that did almost already get the disks, or optical drives extinct. Just the Hard Disk Drive are still here, because the Solid State Drives are a bit expensive.

    The term "Disk" is too strongly referring to drives that use an actual disk. Of course nobody would think that we only could save data on a HDD. But the term "drive" is much more universal, and doesn't sound silly MS-DOS, or Windows XP kind of era. It's in every drive type name already also:

    Hard Disk Drive
    Solid State Drive
    Flash Drive
    CD/DVD/Bluray Drive
    Freaking Floppy Disk DRIVE

    Even the super fast M.2 are based on Solid State Drive technology. So are considered SDD. "Drive" is a synonym that makes a bit more sense than "disk".

    Hi @SouldomainTM,

    Thanks for the suggestion, as for the moment, this caption should be same as the previous Unity launcher.
    I have noted the suggestion, we will take it into consideration and review over it.
