    "safe to remove" notification missing but icon OK

    This just happened to me today. The safe to remove icon is usually located in the hidden taskbar . When I clicked on it to remove a flash drive , I normally get the "safe to remove" notification . Now this has gone missing and the icon shows up in the taskbar instead without any notification . Any idea how to fix? Tks

    New input:

    I ran the sfc /scannow routine . It found that everything is OK but now the "safe to remove" notification is working again .
    So the problem is fixed but I dont know why . Did windows fix a corrupted file by itself ?

Facebook Chat Is Missing "Web" and "Mobile"
Ever since I upgraded to Windows 10 earlier, the Facebook chat doesn't show whether someone's online on Web or on Mobile, no matter which browser I use. It used to show this in Windows 7, but from what I've seen, it's gone in Windows 8, too.
