How can I remove the option to eject SATA drive from the Windows 10 tray icon

Hi,

I have replaced my laptop's DVD-ROM with SATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter and HDD disk. Windows 10 now shows a tray icon "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media" for this (secondary) drive whic is basically non-removable device.

So, how can I remove the option to eject SATA drive from system tray.

(Sorry for the Slovenian language in the snipped Picture)

Hi,

this actually works but not in a way I was hoping. This setting only hides the icon from taskbar -for all devices, so if I insert a USB key, I can't safely remove it through this icon.
