If you want to start the Device Manager from the command line or in the command prompt, click “Start,” “All Programs,” “Accessories,” and then “Command Prompt.” In the command prompt window, type without quotes “devmgmt.msc” then hit Enter. This should then bring up the Device Manager window. The Device Manager is used to check the different hardware devices connected to your computer.
