EjectUSB is a tool for quickly closing apps running from a USB drive and ejecting the drive from safe removal. It will automatically close all programs running from the drive EjectUSB was run from (host drive), close any explorer windows open to the host drive, remove Windows MUI and MRU entries and recent document shortcuts related to the host drive, and attempt to eject the host drive when done. It can also interface with various utilities to aid in drive ejection.

Alternatively, the program can be run from your hard drive as a tool to restore a computer to its post-boot state. If you have 10-20 windows open, this will quickly and easily close them all, akin to pressing a reset button for your desktop.

Warning: Launching EjectUSB will immediately close all programs running from the host drive and eject the drive without user intervention!

An excellent tool or restoring a computer to its post-boot state. If you have 10-20 windows open, this can be sort of like pressing the reset button on your desktop. Tremendously useful.

there is an autohotey (autohotkey.com) alternative which does the same thing but is easy to extend
look for 'Removable'

in addition Autohotkey is worth checking out on it's own. It is a hotkey/macro writer, and a programming language in one, but is far easier to learn than other programming languages
