How do I get back?

Here's a newbee question. I am logged in on my PlexPi and I click on whatever and end up on the Internet I don't know how to get back.

    I suppose you installed a prepared SD card image from some shady youtube channel? Sorry, we cannot help you there as we do not know what's in the image. Either ask in the support forum of these guys for help or start from scratch with an official Raspbian image and follow our "official" guide.

    I was looking for some basic answers none of which should be too hard for a knowledgeable enthusiast. Simple ones like how to quit the Plex GUI and get to prompt. But I did not mean to offend anyone but I can tell you, shady or not, the image works and someone put in some time on it and overall I would recommend it to anyone who does not have the technical ability to do it from scratch but I am sure imaging offends the 'purists'.

    I built my first computer in 1981. I started building and selling computers in 1982. I became did contract work for Swan, CompuiAdd and then Dell. Dell taught me to image. When you sell a few hundred a week you use images. And I can tell you that creating an image to properly install on several different configurations is a skill. So I can't disparage the efforts of the creator of the PlexPi image as being shady. There are few people that can write the script to do this. I certainly have respect for a fellow who can write an install script to capture a drive and auto-mount it. Furthermore it can mount as many external drives as I connect. Can you write such a script? If not maybe you can exercise some respect for those who can and drop the shady reference.

    Peace!

    Take a breath and calm down, please.

    But, there is too little information in these two sentences: "I am logged in on my PlexPi and I click on whatever and end up on the Internet. I don't know how to get back." Can you please be more precise.

    Sorry about that but I will always stand up for others unless I have evidence they are not honest. You might want to take a look at the image. Personally I am not thrilled but it is almost idiot proof and I see a lot of users are having problems setting up Plex on command line. So I would recommend it for those not Linux literate.

    I will not ask any more questions based on the other guys software. I will give your instructions a go soon.My Unix is more than rusty so I expect some problems but before I start I would like to know if your implementation allows a hard drive connected directly to the Pi? and is the drive accessible from the network?

    Of course :D The official Raspbian image is essentially a default Debian Stretch. It's configured like any other Debian server out there. Have you ever used Ubuntu or Debian? Raspbian is essentially the same.

    Edit: and if you really do not like the bash and want a fancy NAS like UI take a look at OMV (openmediavault). It also has a Plex server plugin and is available for the Raspberry Pis.
