You know that little icon that pops up when you plug something into your computer.

How do you get rid of that, without accually removing that hardware?

Re: Safly Remove Hardware

There are several existing thread with how to hide the icon. No one ever came up with a way of disabling the actual program.

Search safely remove hardware on the forum.

Re: Safly Remove Hardware

if you have sata hard disks it will always show up, since SATA can hotswap :) Just make sure to pull both power and data out as near to the same time as possible if not using a hotswap bay :)

Yes I know that. I have a digital camera usb cable connected, which I always thought they didn't show up like that. I guess it depends on which kind.

Thanks

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.




Is this what you wanted Bman?

No no, I have already done that, I just think the taskbar looks better without the little arrrow or anything. I thought there was away to completly remove but I guess not.

Well do What I posted for everything and then maybe it will all go away.


Have you tried TweakUI? Under the "Taskbar and Start Menu" heading. Uncheck the "Show Taskbar Notification Icons" box. See what happens. And no, I am not gonna do it, you do it.

In that section of TweakUI there is no "Show Taskbar Notification Icons"

and thats for things within the startmenu anyways..

I am not willing to pay $10 lmao...Looks like I'm stuck with it hiding only. I guess thats alright.

Thanks

I think the "Show Taskbar Notification Icons" refers to the XP Ballons that popup.

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
