    Create a desktop shortcut to remove USB devices.

    Step 1

    Right click on your desktop and choose New -> Shortcut.

    Step 2

    Type “ RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll ”, no quotes, for the location. After that, change the name of the shortcut.

    Rename it to “Remove USB“ or whatever then select an icon for it.

    I might try that, but I like to use the "Safely Remove hardware" Icon on the tray.

    Thanks for the advice!:D

    Left-clicking on "Safely Remove hardware" icon makes quick work of this task.

    No big thing but you can make shortcuts to most run commands such as "ipconfig /flush dns" then give em a name and icon to suit.
