Isn't this included with Win 7? Seems like it's not popping up like it did with Win XP. :huh:

I didn't have a "Safely Remove Hardware" icon on my Win7 x64 Home Premium either. But recently I came across this tutorial on how to set one up over on Seven Forums. I followed the instructions and now have the icon to the Safely Remove Hardware dialog box now on my desktop. Hope this helps: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/79216...cut-create.html

Thanks, haven't used it yet, but it should work. Now, how do I pin it to the taskbar?

That tutorial has a link to "Pin to Taskbar" at the top. You should really check out their extensive Tutorials section. I spent a whole day learning cool stuff about Win7 just browsing their tutorials. They seem to have one for doing just about EVERYTHING in Win7. :huh:

I didn't try because I actually prefer this particular icon on my desktop, lower right corner anyway, so not a problem for me.
