For me its very annoying specially if you are in internet cafe business where a lot of customer bring a flashdrive with documents to print. And you have to Safely Remove the device for each and everyone in a tiresome way. So to make our life a little bit easier let do a small hack to Launch "Safely Remove Dialog Box" by Creating Shortcut or by assigning Hotkey.

1. Right-click on the desktop and choose New -->Shortcut
2. Then paste in the following into the location box:
Rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll
3. Next Give a Shortcut name.

1. Right-click on the Created Shortcut icon.
2. Open the properties dialog, then go to the Shortcut tab.

3.  Now Assign a Shortcut key (Here i have assigned CTRL+ALT+Down).
