Find and open the app My Files.   Select your SD card from the list on the left. Click on the 3 dot menu in the upper right and tap UNMOUNT.

Do you need an SD card to be installed in the tablet for this to work?

Nope, just plugged one into my connected USB hub and then unmounted it with My Files.
