    Device Manager Disappears in Computer Management Console


    For some reason the device manager on three of my computers has disappeared from the computer management console. I can access the device manager via control panel or the settings for windows 10, but not via the computer management console. It is there when I first install windows 10, but sometime between the initial install and the time I install all my programs it disappears. Any ideas???

    It's there for me. My Win10 [Home and Pro] computers also have both features, Computer Management and Device Manager, on the Right-click menu of the Start button along with a number of others that can be quite handy.

    What have you done on those three PC's above and beyond your normal everyday tasks?

    Nothing out of the norm. This was a clean install on all the computers, but as you can see the device manager is not longer present

    OK, some people run scripts and or other custom mods that can sometimes have unforeseen consequences. Just wanted to rule that out.

    One difference is Diskeeper, doesn't come with Windows but then I haven't needed it for awhile and I never saw it do anything to the devices list.

    Just a change with Windows 10. Control Panel is also on that context menu. What I think is weird is My Computer/My PC is not on the Start menu but can be reached by opening File Explorer and right-clicking This PC.
