    You can always create a new Device Metadata key and then a new PreventDeviceMetadataFromNetwork Dword with a value of 1 and see if it helps
    I've put a shortcut to Win10's SETTINGS > DEVICES on my desktop. It displays the same info as DEVICES & PRINTERS and does display instantly, though the info is catagorized so does not offer the "all at once" view that D&P does. I really don't care for the Fisher Price icons in DEVICES but can live with them for the instant display that it offers.

    Thanks,

    Hi OldMike65,

    Try clicking on CONTROL PANEL > DEVICES & PRINTERS, then look away for 61 seconds before you can see the results. It is extremely irritating after having Win 8 and below display D&P almost instantly.

    Best regards,

    Like I said earlier, I did that and it takes about 1 sec to view DEVICES & PRINTERS on my Windows 10.

    Well for you & others with < 1 sec it does = "no big deal". For us with 90+ seconds, we have to find work arounds just to access printer status, etc. So yes, there are work-arounds, but WTF these should not be necessary...

    It is hard to imagine troubles, that never occurred to you... My first advice (at the beginning of this thread) didn't really help a lot.

    I don't know if this will lead to any solution, but try this program latency monitor and maybe it will show which process is responsible for this delay. It is more often used with audio and video problems, but worth a try...

    There are some pro user here, that are more familiar with this program and if it shows anything, we may draw their attention here.
