    Device Manager is not in the Computer Management


    It's strange that Device Manager is not in the Computer Management on my Win10. It was there yesterday, but I don't know why it disappeared.

    Any method of adding it back? Thanks!

    Try right clicking the start flag and select Device Manager. See if that helps you.

    Sorry that I didn't mention that device manager is there. I can run it via your way or typing devmgmt.msc.

    It's just not in the Computer Management.

    Try runnning sfc /scannow from a Elevated Command Prompt, see if that helps.

    Please post a screenshot of your computer management. This will tell you how. https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1...en-forums.html It should be there.

    This has happened before. Check out topgundcp's recommendation here:

    I thought the recommendation would work, but it didn't. Strange.

    Cannot read Chinese but did you set it to "Not Configured" ?

    Sorry about the Chinese, but yes, they're all 'not yet configured', not 'disabled'.

    Sorry that I missed your reply. I have tried sfc /scannow. It told me that it fixed some damaged files.

    But device manager didn't come back to the computer management.
