    Remove USB pen drive from iMac
    Hi all,

    I'm new to the Mac world. Just wanted to know how to proceed to safely remove a pen drive in Mac OSX. It doesn't seem to be documented anywhere or may be I'm looking in the wrong direction.
    Thanks for your help!.


    regards,
    Ali

    Specs:
    Late 2013 27" iMac, iPad 3, iPhone 6s+, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, El Capitan
    Several ways to do it:

    1. Drag the Pen drive to the Trash.

    2. Right click on the drive and select "eject".
