Windows 11 22H2 has an annoying new bug that prevents some users from being able to safely eject their USB devices if Task Manager is open.

Whenever you plug in a USB device, especially a storage device such as a USB flash drive, be sure to safely eject it before removing it. In Windows 11, you can do this by right-clicking the USB icon in the taskbar and selecting ‘Eject’ by the name of the device you want to remove.
