    My friend has lost the Safely Remove icon on her main computer, a newer desktop with Windows 10. I could not find a way/place to restore it. Please help. And thanks.

    Have a look in Settings > Personalization > Taskbar > Notifications area > Select which icons appear on the taskbar.
    Look for "Windows Explorer Safely remove hardware and eject media". If its set to off toggle it to ON.
    When off it only shows up if you click the up arrow in the notifications area, its semi hidden.
