Try this. Go into Task Manager and end the process [right-click] for explorer.exe, then create a new task for explorer.exe.

I hope this helps!

Open Control Panel & select Notification Area Icons. When that opens look for Windows Explorer & then click on the little arrow on the panel showing options & change it to "Only Show Notifications".

If Windows Explorer is not showing click on Restore Default Icon Behaviours.

Hi,

If you mean safely eject hardware and you are not showing an eject cmd in your context menu; I had this problem awhile back and running the "Hardware and devices troubleshooter (H&D T)" fixed it for me.

Keep the Notification Area Icon for explorer set the way you have it, and here's a tutorial on how to get to the H&D T: How to Open and Use "Troubleshooting" in Windows 7

After you open the troubleshooter click on Hardware and Sound and let the list populate, H&D is 3rd? one down the list.
  • If you click on Advanced you can repair any problems automatically by checking the auto box, and a report will generate to let you know what was checked and repaired or if all tests were okay.
  • If you don't check the auto box the tests will run and you will have the option to repair any problems the troubleshooter finds. A final report will be run to let you know what was fixed and what was not.
  • The choice is yours but I've always run troubleshooter's in auto.

I'm not sure why you need this icon.

In Device Manager, Disk Drives, Find your flash drive. Right click on it and select Properties. In Policies, if the first option is selected, then you don't need to use the "Safely remove......" feature.

You are correct, you don't always need to eject safely if you are observant to what the drive is doing. It's a fail-safe to make sure you don't lose or corrupt the information on the drive.

As long as you are sure the drive has completed it's "writings" go ahead and remove it.
