Help > How to hide an unnecessary device from the menu?

By default, USB Safely Remove displays only storage devices in the device stopping menu, which are the devices with drive letters. Often our users want to hide some devices from the menu to prevent their accidental stopping (e.g. SATA drives that actually are not external drives).

It can be done in a snap! Call the stop menu, right-click with mouse and select "Hide device from the tray menu" item in the popped up context menu.
How to show a device back in the menu?
Open the main window (by left-clicking to the "Hidden devices" link at the bottom left corner of the stop menu), find your device in the "Hidden from the menu" section and...
  • call device context menu (right-click on the device to call it), and choose "Show device in the tray menu" item
  • or drag the device with the left mouse button from the "Hidden..." section to the "Displayed in the menu" section
