    This PC and File explorer are under Windows System in the Start Menu.

    I am just use to using the control console to do everything. I guess one of these days I will figure it out and get it back in there.

    Right, but for my needs I find it easier/quicker to have them in the Start tiles list.

    In the local group policy editor. Under
    User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Microsoft Management Console->Restricted/Permitted snap-ins->Extension snap-ins.
    If you have the Extentions snap-ins for Device Manager Disabled then the Device Manager will not show up in Computer Management Console as shown in the screen shot:

    If you are using Windows 10 Home Edition then Group Policy Editor is not available. However, you can try this tweak to enable the Group Policy Editor. I have never done this so I don't know if it works:

    zip file below.

    Or if you prefer to put in Win+X menu then download:
    Win+X Menu Editor for Windows 8
    Then add a Control Panel Item->This PC to group 2
