Question: Where Do I Find Device Manager in Windows?
Trying to find Device Manager on your Windows PC? Trust me, it's there, even if you're having problems finding it. Device Manager isn't listed next to your regular programs so it can be difficult to find if you don't already know where it is.
Answer: In most versions of Windows, you can find Device Manager in the Computer Management utility, the System applet in Control Panel, or you can start it by running a specific command from Command Prompt.
Finding Device Manager is a little different depending on the operating systems you're using so I've included links to instructions specific for each:
Find Device Manager in Windows 8
Find Device Manager in Windows 7
Find Device Manager in Windows Vista
- Find Device Manager in Windows XP
Device Manager is used to manage the Windows recognized hardware in your computer. Device Manager can be found in all editions of Microsoft's operating systems since Windows 95.
