Adding a 'Safely remove hardware' option to the context (right click) menu in My Computer
Posted on 2005-03-08
I was wondering whether anyone had written a shell extension or other program that added a feature that does the following:
Add a 'Safely remove this device' option when you right click on a removable drive in My Computer. The extension I want would automatically know which device I want to remove when I right click it and not just bring up the 'Safely Remove Hardware' option that can be achieved at the bottom right hand corner of the taskbar.
I really would like to have this option as I am always in Explorer copying files from drive to drive and putting them onto non-networked computers. It would save me a lot of time if I could just go up to My Computer, right click and select 'Safely remove this device' as I generally have 4-6 devices attached at any one time (CD Drives, Printers, modems, USB drives etc).
I'm offering 500 points for this one because I want it THAT much!
If anyone can come up with a quick program (or knows where I can get detailed information on how to create such an extension to the context menu), then I'd appreciate it greatly.
