  4. Weird cpu like looking icon on windows 10 on my usb drive

    USB Drives plugged in but No Safely Remove Icon in Tray, and


    ....no drives listed in Hardware List.

    When I plug USB drives in, the Safely Remove Hardware icon does not appear in in system tray (its not hidden either)

    First, I went to Settings > Personalization > Taskbar > Select which Icons Appear on the Taskbar...

    .. and found it was already on

    Next I tried using the solution in this post...

    Solved No safely remove icon in tray any more after Windows 10 Anniversary up - Windows 10 Forums

    ...making a shortcut from "rundll32 shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll", but when I run the shortcut, there are no devices listed...

    (in this screenshot, you can see two USB drives in the Explorer window in the BG but nothing listed in the panel. )

    NOTE: They are listed in Disk Management and in the Device Manager under Disk Drives, and they function just fine..
    I think the Safely Remove Hardware icon is not appearing because despite being detected and showing in Explorer, Device Manager and Disk Management, its not being listed in this panel for some reason.


    NOTE2: I recently installed a new motherboard.

    ASUS B150M-A
    CPU Intel Core i5 - 6500 (3.2 GHz)
    Mem 4096 MB (DDR4 - 2133)

    I am 100% sure it was working before that, but I cannot say for sure if it was still working after that.
    A friend suggested that it might be a setting in BIOS, but I have looked through it and nothing stands out.

    Any suggestions would be welcome.


    ETA: this is not the system listed in my System Specs page. That is another computer which I still have.
