    Device Manager Disappears in Computer Management Console


    For some reason the device manager on three of my computers has disappeared from the computer management console. I can access the device manager via control panel or the settings for windows 10, but not via the computer management console. It is there when I first install windows 10, but sometime between the initial install and the time I install all my programs it disappears. Any ideas???

    :)

  3. Device Manager is gone from Computer Management Console. Any solution?

    Hello Jhon,

    We still can't identify the possible causes of the missing Device Manager on the Computer Management Console. To isolate and assist you better, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Which Windows build and version are you using?
    • Have you made any recent changes to your computer prior to the issue?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you run the System File Checker Tool. It will help you check for any system file corruption. You can visit this
    article to know more details about it.

    Also, if you need to access Device Manager, just press and hold the Windows icon + X or right-click the Start button, then select
    Device Manager from the context menu.

    We're looking forward to your response.

    It's there for me. My Win10 [Home and Pro] computers also have both features, Computer Management and Device Manager, on the Right-click menu of the Start button along with a number of others that can be quite handy.

    Nothing out of the norm. This was a clean install on all the computers, but as you can see the device manager is not longer present

  9. OK, some people run scripts and or other custom mods that can sometimes have unforeseen consequences. Just wanted to rule that out.

    One difference is Diskeeper, doesn't come with Windows but then I haven't needed it for awhile and I never saw it do anything to the devices list.

    Just a change with Windows 10. Control Panel is also on that context menu. What I think is weird is My Computer/My PC is not on the Start menu but can be reached by opening File Explorer and right-clicking This PC.

    This PC and File explorer are under Windows System in the Start Menu.

    I am just use to using the control console to do everything. I guess one of these days I will figure it out and get it back in there.

    Right, but for my needs I find it easier/quicker to have them in the Start tiles list.
