Is there a way to change the mount location when plugging a device into USB?

I want to move it to the root directory. I am rooted.

Please note that I want no setup done on the PC, that is, do not suggest methods involving changing the PC. If I have to, I will though.

    MTP (the protocol used to make files available to your PC) is managed by Android itself. It does not feature a way to explore the root directory. You could however use ADB (Android Debugging Bridge) and use your command line to access the root of your device by using the command adb shell (given that either adb is inside the folder your command line is currently in or adb has been added to your PATH variable).

  • Run a Web/FTP/WebDAV/SSH/Samba.. server on Android and access it on PC using hotspot or USB tethering. Otherwise, ADB is good. You may also consider adbfs. Both methods would allow access using GUI.
