    Odd enough, but maybe this setting was saved in your user profile and was not restored.

    In device manager click on File -> options
    Here delete saved data.

    close down device manager then log off and log in again.
    If this doesn't work I have no other suggestions other than reinstalling Windows.

    You can also try to create new standard user account, log in and start device manager as standard user (not as Admin)
    I already tried that and I Am on backup, so nothing should persists and I don't use Microsoft account, if that's what you meant.

    I did need to delete some hidden devices, but I realized I can use hardware IDs, I also could use only keyboard So I don't need anymore to fix this, but it would be easier to not show all of these, if I will need to do similar things in the future. I guess can try standard account then...

    OK, by "standard" account I meant not a local Admin, unrelated to MS account, because any changes on standard account do no affect any system settings, so your Admin account stays clean.
