One of you has to go

When removing an USB memory stick on Windows XP, this is what you have to do.
( sorry about the dutchity of the XP version, but you don’t have to know dutch to see what’s going on )

First action, right-clicking the tray icon for usb devices.

First Action

Then you need to select the device. Hey, I’m all for selecting the correct device, you know me.

Second Action

And then you have to…select the correct device ?? What the…?

Third Action

C’mon, am I the only one who is bothered by this?
Just remove the darned device already !

    “First action, right-clicking the tray icon for usb devices.”

    Try left-clicking then 😛

    Thanks !
    However this is really sad as I knew this shortcut some time ago. Apparently I just forgot it.
    This brings me to the topic that tray icons should decide once and for all whether you have to left- or right-click on them 😉
