Windows 7: Why can't I remove my Internet Modem USB Stick in Windows 7?

64-bit Windows 10 Pro

Hello LUCK,

Are you not able to just simply physically unplug it when you like as CyberZeus posted above? It's not going to hurt anything by unplugging a USB modem like this except losing your connection until you plug it back in and it's detected.

Luck, check it over well looking for a release latch of some kind. Contact the maker of the USB modem and your laptop manufacturer.
