make shortcut for safly remove dialogue box


Recommended Posts

If you often use removable USB devices like a flash drive, you are probably already familiar with the “Safely Remove Hardware” icon that sits in the system tray. The problem for many people is that the icon is small, and clicking it just right to bring up the menu is a pain. Can’t we just make a shortcut to bring up the dialog?

Follow the below Instructions:

1.) Right-click anywhere on the desktop and choose New > Shortcut.

2.) Then paste in the following into the location box: RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll

3.) Give it a name, and you’ll have a shortcut icon.

4.) that will pull up the Safely Remove Hardware dialog.

Assign a Shortcut Key

If you want to assign a shortcut key to this dialog, you can right-click the icon and open the properties dialog, then go to the Shortcut tab. Add in the shortcut key and close the dialog. As long as the shortcut is on your desktop you shouldn’t have to restart anything for the hotkey to work. You can also move the shortcut to another folder, for instance your quick launch bar.
