Eject USB drive with keyboard shortcut
Download USB Disk Ejector. Connect your system to the drive you want to be able to eject with a keyboard shortcut, and then run the app.
Select Options from the More menu at the bottom left. Open the dropdown menu under the Hotkeys tab. Choose whether your USB drive should be identified by a drive label, a drive letter, a mount point, or a drive name. After you’ve chosen your identification criteria, choose your drive from the dropdown below.

Finally, assign it a hotkey or keyboard shortcut. Click Add, and the app will be minimized to the system tray.
You can eject the USB drive using the defined keyboard shortcut while the app is running in the system tray.
To identify and eject a drive, you can use any of the supported methods. You can use it to eject almost all drives if your PC assigns drive letters dynamically, for example, whichever USB drive you connect to your system will be assigned the letter E. You’ll need to create a few different shortcuts so that you can still use them to eject drives when your system has more than one, such as shortcuts for ejecting drives E, F, and G.
You can use either the label or the name criteria if you want a shortcut to be for a specific drive. No matter how many other drives are connected to your system, give your drive a name and it will always stick.

USB Disk Ejector is compatible with both USB disks and card readers. It won’t work with other devices that need to be ejected first before being removed. Connecting a device/drive to your system and looking at the app’s window is an easy way to see if the app will be able to eject it. You’ll be able to map a shortcut to eject the drive if it appears as a connected device.
