    Safely Remove Hardware notification not displayed


    When I use the Safely Remove Hardware to remove, for example a USB flash drive, I do not get the notification that the device can be removed. I used to get this in Win 8.1 and I still get it in Win 7.

    Is there a way to enable the message? (I know a lot of people don't want the message but I do).

    Had the same problem. Solved as follows:

    -Click on Windows Start icon
    -Click on Settings
    -Click on Notifications & actions
    -Under Notifications put 'Show app notification' to ON

    Mine is already on. So that is not the problem.

    Just checked my "Preview" version and it does not show the message either when I use Safely Remove Hardware.
