Windows 10: "Safe to remove" pop-up does not appear. Solved

  1.    12 May 2017 #1

    "Safe to remove" pop-up does not appear.


    When I click on "Safely Remove" for a USB drive the drive disappears from the list and also from the Windows Explorer drive view, but I do not receive the "Safe to remove" pop-up message.

    Any ideas?

    That sounds right from my experience.

    Not in my experience, I always get the notification - but then we probably have chosen different notification settings.

    Settings > System > Notifications & actions
    @Hairy Scot For 'safe to remove' notifications, turn on 'Get notifications from apps and other senders'.

    It sounds right, and it probably is not a major problem, but it is a concern.
    The message should appear.

    DUH!

    I can't believe I had turned that off!

    Thank you.
