To eject a USB drive we have to move the mouse cursor to the Safely Remove Hardware icon , disconnect the USB and then physically remove the pendrive. To help with that we can recommend USB Disk Ejector.
Sometimes Windows won’t let you disconnect the device, usually because some file is being used. In this case the “Safely Remove Hardware” option will not eject the USB device. Then you should have a program to safely remove USB to help you with the case.
