    No Safely remove notifiction pop up, HAVE Icon


    The notification to safely remove hardware pop up box does not appear.
    I have the Icon to click , and can see any Usb device , thumb drive or Hard drive.
    Just no SAFE TO REMOVE HARDWARE BOX, the devices are removed as they no longer appear but I get no confirmation of removal.
    I Have done a SFC no errors. This just started this week, all my other computers are 64 bit and do have the
    notification box pop up.
    I have tried disabling and re-enabling the Icon , no change.
    I have checked a couple other sites, others have the same problem on a 64 bit machine.
    Anyone any Ideas ?

    Hi there. Welcome to the forums. In Device Manager (Windows Key/X) > Right click on the device. What do you get?

    Did the balloon notification appear before?

    If yes, some windows update( Microsoft Security Essentials/Windows Defender) could have caused it. It was so in Windows 7 sometime ago.

    A later update had fixed the problem and the balloon notification reappeared.

    If your problem is similar to this one, then you may have to wait for a future update to undo the disappearance.

    If you hadn't updated Windows Defender update it now and check whether the message balloon reappears.

    Yes the Balloon notification was working a week ago then stopped.
    I also suspect it was an update, I just didnt know if it was something else.
    I update defender quite often and have the latest update as of today 3-28-17 ,still the same
    thanks for the info
    Just another windows quirk

    Also all my usb devices show up in device manager and Policies are set for Quick removal
    and they are ejected correctly just no Click image for larger version.

    I had to do this when I had the same problem.
    For safe eject USB notification missing:• Press keyboard "win + R"• Type "regedit"• Search the value "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Notification\Settings\Microsoft.Explore r.Notification.{...}"• If you REG_DWORD 0x00000001(0) set "0" you can double click on value. Set the value data to "1"• Click "OK"

    Thank you so much!
    I did notice that there were 3 entry's for the NOTIFICATION all with dword of zero
    I changed the first one to a 1
    and deleted the other two that were "0"
    rebooted and "Safely remove hardware" box is back
    Thanks again
