Earlier today, I’ve made another post doing something very similar to this one. You can have a look at it here.
We are going to do the exact same thing actually, but this time, you will be able to use the code that I’m giving without any modification.

Just right click anywhere in a folder select New->Shortcut.
As the path to the shortcut, write this:
%windir%\system32\RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll
Now, whenever you double-click that shortcut, it will open up the “Safely Remove Hardware” dialog.
You can actually do better by selecting “Properties” from the context menu of the shortcut, and assigning a hotkey for it. Now, you don’t need to search for the icon in the system tray. You just have to press a hotkey. Hope it increases your productivity a little bit.
By the way, you can also execute the path above programmatically to get the “Safely Remove Hardware” dialog.
