    Safely Remove Hardware icon missing


    Hi
    In the last few days the 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon has gone missing from my Taskbar. Also, if I right-click on the USB stick or USB hard drive in 'This Computer' the Eject option is missing.
    In PC Settings/Personalisation/Taskbar/Notification area/Select which icons appear on the taskbar I have 'Always show all icons in the notification area' switched on & all items in the list are in the 'on' state including 'Windows Explorer (Safely Remove Hardware & Eject Media).
    Any suggestions?

  3. Safely remove hardware icon

    Hi Cynthia,

    For us to properly isolate the missing "Safely Remove Hardware icon" issue, we would like to know the following:

    • Were there any changes made on your computer prior to the issue (e.g., updates, software installation)?
    • When did the issue first begin?
    • To make sure that we have not missed on anything, what troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    Normally, this icon isn’t missing and it’s most likely hidden in your Taskbar. To reveal this icon, you may click the arrow in the bottom right corner to show more sysbar icons. If it is available, you may pin it to your Taskbar by following the steps below:

    • Connect a USB flash drive or any other removable storage to your PC.
    • Click the arrow in the bottom right corner to expand the sysbar section.
    • Now locate Safely Remove Hardware icon and drag it to your Taskbar.

    We look forward to your response.

  4. Taskbar settings..Does not show Safe to Remove Hardware Icon when checked to show

    "Safely remove hardware" icon not showing on taskbar

    Windows 10 Version 1607 on a Tower PC

    In Settings "Select which icons appear on the taskbar" I have set ON "Safely remove hardware and eject media" (*). The Taskbar is not locked. When I plug in a USB memory stick, the icon does NOT appear on the taskbar. If I click on the "Hidden icons" up-arrow,
    the icon is in the hidden icons box. What do I need to do to make the icon appear on the taskbar and not in the hidden icons box on this PC ?

    (*) Please note that on other Windows 10 PCs that I have checked, with this same setting, the icon does appear on the taskbar and not in the hidden icons box.
