For Windows 10, version 1809 and later, remote storage media such as flash drives and otherwise will now default to quick removal
. This is important for portable users as you might:
- Enjoy no longer having to eject drives, which means this is a good change (convenience)
- Want the maximum performance from your removable devices, which means you should restore the old behavior (described here on a per-device basis)
To do this same process in reverse (enabling quick removal) see this process for Windows 7 and 8
, which also carries a bit more background on the topic.
I couldn't figure out how to do this system-wide for all devices you attach.
