Right-click on the desktop icon of any external volume connected to your Mac and drag it into the trash can located in your Dock. You can also choose “Eject” from the File menu in Finder, press Command-E on your keyboard (there may be an eject key located at the top right corner of some keyboards), or press and hold F12 until your disc is ejected from the drive.
