There are two easy ways to access the Device Manager:

  • Point to (but do not click) the lower-right or top-right corner of the screen, click to select the Search charm, and in the Search field, type Device Manager and then press the Enter key.
  • Press the Windows Logo + X key combination on the keyboard and, from the list, click Device Manager.

NOTE: Because the Device Manager is a traditional Windows Desktop application, whichever method you use, the interface will change to the Desktop and the Device Manager window will open.
