Right click on your "Task Bar". Click on "Properties". When the window opens the Task Bar section is open. Click on "Customize". Scroll down to the "Safely Remove Hardware" item and click on it. A drop down box opens next to it. Set it to "Always Hide". Click O.K.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
