  1. No option to open Device and Printers in control panel in Windows 11 22h2


    In previous versions of windows 11 and windows 10, I was able to access the devices and printers options from control panel instead of settings. Now the devices and printers from control panel opens the settings, which lack some options, especially the option to turn on or off handsfree telephony for Bluetooth devices. Is there anyway to access this option in windows 11 22h2?

    :)

  2. Control Panel... Devices and Printers content

    Hi,

    Thank you for the reply and update.

    As there is a delay in opening the Devices and Printers content from the Control Panel, suggest you to follow this alternative method of opening the same screen to check if that helps.


    • Press “Windows key + I” to get the Settings screen.

    • Click on “Devices” and click on “Devices and printers”.

    If there are external devices connected then pc takes some time to communicate with those devices and then the screen opens up.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    Windows 10 search no longer finds Devices and printers inside control panel

    This last Windows 10 update has blocked my ability to jump right to "Devices and Printers" that is located inside the control panel by using the search feature. I use to be able to just search for the keyword "Printers" and it would show up at the top
    of the search list. After the last windows 10 upgrade that stopped working. Seem as though Windows 10 wants to force us to use the new "Settings" app. which I dislike for printer controls. Is there a way to force Windows 10 to find the "Devices and Printers"
    controls that are located within the Control Panel? As of now I search for Control Panel, open it and click on Devices and Printers. This is more steps than before and annoying.

  4. No option to open Device and Printers in control panel in Windows 11 22h2

    windows 10 VERY slow when trying to open Devices & Printers?

    Although I appreciate your offer for suggestions as you can see by the post dates, this thread is a bit long in the tooth. The issue was resolved with one of the updated builds of windows 10. Although in my opinion it's still not as fast as Windows 7, it's nowhere near as slow as it was in summer 2016 when I posted this issue.

    Thread issue resolved
