I'm new to Elementary. I'm also not used to non-debian Linuxes. How do I go about safely unmounting the USB which I used to install Elementary?!

1 Answer 1


Right after install, just remove it when the pc goes off during reboot. In general you hit the eject button next to the usb sticks name in files. See screenshot enter image description here

  • thank you so much. it's been a while since i've used linux, and the name of the USB stick was changed to ELEMENTARY-something during format, so i simply assumed it was part of the system files or something xD thank you again<33333
