IT'S SO ANNOYING! Waiting and waiting for Windows or MacOS to allow you to take out YOUR Thumb Drive... yeah... we've all been in those situations. Thumb Drives are amazing for transporting documents, photos, and audio... but when you're writing data to them - they can become corrupt if you yank them out too soon.
So nowwwwww.... Microsoft is saying it's okay to yank your flash drive out without ejecting it. Windows 10 has a feature called "quick removal." ... as long as nothing is being written to it.
