    Question Mark

    Anyone know how I can remove the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon from my taskbar? It's from my external harddrive.

    Try these, from http://www.msfn.org/board/lofiversio...hp/t50249.html :
    1)
    right click on taskbar
    select "properties"
    check "hide unactive icons" at the bottom
    click "customize"
    select the "safely remove hardware" line
    choose "always hide" in the drop-down list
    click OK twice

    2)
    right click on "my computer" on desktop
    select "manage"
    select "device manager" in the left tree
    expand the "USB controller" category on the right tree
    double-click the "root USB hub" where your "always on" device is connected
    in the last tab ("power management"), uncheck the "allow to shutdown" checkbox
    click OK and close the "device manager"
    reboot
    But isn't the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon a nessesary one?

    Why would it be nessesary? I don't plan on unplugging my harddrive.

    Well I did the first, all that did was hide it, which adds the arrow to un-hide it. I was kinda hoping to remove it completely, I don't know if I should try the second, because then would my external hdd be able to turn off?

    Right Click taskbar, and configure the inactive icons.
