Safely Remove Hardware

If the systray does not work in Win 7 pro, how would I go about creating something that would enable me to remove a memory stick safeely from a USB.

Open the quick launch. If you have a drive on a USB there will be a little green icon in there. Mouse over it. It should say safely remove hardware. Click on it and it will ask you which one to eject. Then click on that one and all done.

Sorry but maybe I did'nt explain it properly.

I am running DX 4 on Win7 pro(64) and have been told that there is no systray function in this setup.

With the theme that I have it covers all access to the small icons and so what I am asking is there another way off ejecting the memory stick from the usb.

go to My computer right click the USB then click Eject ...

A dialog box will pop up telling you it's safe to remove..
