A small informative post for today that lets you know (in case you don’t already know), how to remove and show the “Safely Remove Hardware” icon from Taskbar.
Hiding or removing the icon is not that difficult and if you want to clear your task bar of the green icon then following are the steps:
1. Right click on the Task Bar and select properties.
2. Now click on the Customize button and in case if it is greyed out then check the box “Hide Inactive Icons”
3. In the list of the Current Items, change the behavior of “safely Remove Hardware” from Hide when Inactive to Always Hide.
4. This is it; the icon will not appear again.
Reverse process will make the icon to appear again.
