    Devices and Printers is not loading anything


    My Devices and Printers is not loading anything at all. All the printers etc. are OK and show up in Settings, Devices. I have tried anything I can find on the web, all services are on the “right settings” , SFC scan Is OK, been into a safe boot and still nothing. I reinstalled two of the printers; not showing so removed them via Settings. I have done everything in How To fix Devices and Printers not Loading on Windows 10 Version 1903 and more sites. Any ideas very welcome.

    :)
