I apologize if my question is going to sound stupid, but I’m still spending most of my time working in Windows 7, and I rarely got the time to fire up Windows 8, until now finally getting my vacations.
I purchased WP8 developers subscription to have some fun during those free days. So I open Visual Studio, connect my phone (because my old computer doesn’t want to run emulator), play a little, and everything is fine.
However, when I close Visual Studio and try to safely remove the phone, it says that it couldn’t be done because some program still uses it, and that I should stop that program first. The only way I could do that really safely is to shut down the computer.
So I have two questions:
How to find out which program is still using some hardware, in order to stop it?
Is there any way of removing the hardware in Windows 8 without using the desktop mode?
Thanks for any thoughts.
