Safely remove hardware icon

I'm sure this has been asked before, but how do I get rid of the safely remove hardware icon in the system tray? I don't mean hide it, I mean completely get rid of it.

I switched my drives over to AHCI(faster boot) and this is why my drives are listed as removable but I have no need to remove/disconnect my hard drives (both internal)

This is really annoying my OCD lol and I have a few friends laptops I'd like to remove it from as well.

right click on the taskbar, click properties, click customize, find safely remove hardware icon and on the left should be something that says "hide when inactive". Click that and select "always hide"
