    KB shortcut to Device Manager not working?


    For decades I've use Win + Break to get straight to the Device Manager. But suddenly that's opening All Settings, which then requires a couple of extra clicks. Are other seeing this change please?

    :)

    Device Manager shortcut

    Why not create a shortcut as @Farvatten suggested and drag it to the task bar. Then it's a one click open.
