The Start Menu is increasingly becoming a focal point of Windows 10. The shortcuts to the main functions and applications we have on this operating system, always just a mouse click away.
That's why it's important to have the shortcuts to what we use and need the most. Here's how to add Windows 10 Device Manager in the Start Menu.
By putting these shortcuts in the Start Menu we are simplifying the use of Windows 10. Everything is neat and ready to use, just the user wants to use it and when he wants to do it.
A new element for the Start Menu
There are several elements of the operating system that we can put there, some more straightforward and others require some user intervention. In the case of Device Manager, they should start by right-clicking anywhere on the desktop.
Then you should choose New and then Shortcut. Inside this new window you should put the command devmgmt.msc. They should also give you a new suggestion, such as Device Manager, to use later in the Start Menu.
It will be useful for Device Manager to be there
After this step you should click on the new icon you created, which will be named before. This will be another right-click to access the context menu. Then choose Post to Start.
Once it completes this step, Device Manager is already in the Start Menu. They can, however, delete the new icon they created as they won't need it again.
A great addition to Windows 10
They can then open the Start Menu and confirm that this new option is present. You should then see it immediately in the list of icons on the right. Clicking will open the Device Manager window, as mostly intended.
If you want to tidy up this area, you can also do it simply. They just need to drag the icon to the desired position, then move the others to be simple to use.
After we have shown how to place Settings items in this area, it's time to make it even better with Device Manager. It gets richer and more stuffed with the tools needed for the user.
