USB issues are the worst! It takes an awful lot of time and trouble to correct any problems that Windows develops with USB flash drives and external storage, if at all.
Luckily, the operating system now has functionality built in to it that allows you to receive notifications when it sees and encounters any USB issues present on your system — most notably related to the USB drives and devices that you connect and disconnect.
If enabled, Windows will show you notifications of errors and problems with your USB, and point you in the right direction to fix them.
Here’s how you can receive notification for USB issues in Windows 10.
1. Open Settings.
2. Go to the Devices section.
3. Click or tap on the USB on the left side, and you will see a single option that reads Notify me if there are issues connecting to USB devices.
4. Simply turn it on or off.
