Well I agree on several things.
1. Windows remove drive is one of worst parts (I was relieved several years back when I found suitable replacement for it)
2. Windows 10 made it worse by classifying and reporting every Removable Drive as MTP device (which helps on one side but make things worse on the other)
3. MM can improve that list especially in MM5 [#15674]
4. There are several apps to help you regarding that, some free some not. PERSONALLY!!!!
I use Zentimo
to handle windows shortcomings. Again PERSONALLY
I recommend them along with USB Controller
There is way to prevent MMW detect Drives, but then it will not detect other devices too. Workaround is to Delete d_WMDM.dll from plugins folder.
