“Safe to remove “ splash does not show

I have updated a number of my own and relatives PC’s with the 1809 update. On my desktop, when I press the icon to remove, say, a usb, a message says “safe to remove hardware “. On a relatives modern laptop, when I press the same icon , the name of the usb disappears so I can remove it but no “safe to remove “ message appears. Is there a setting somewhere to harmonise this? Tried Dr Google but could not find a good answer

This is an Asus laptop. One suggestion on the link suggested turning off “quiet hours” . Will look tomorrow

Not yet solved. Works on one Asus, not on another.

I gave up on mine and did a clean reinstall from a DVD. Less bother in the long run. I now have two desktops with white Cortana search boxes. Maybe white's the new grey. And as for your favourite, checking System Restore, which I do by default now thanks to you, this one had System Restore 'ON', as opposed to the first where it was 'OFF'.
