Shortcut To The Device Manager

If you find yourself accessing your device manager a lot, you can add a shortcut to it on your desktop for easier access. Just right-click on an empty space on the Desktop and select 'New->Shortcut'. In the 'Location' box, copy and paste this line:

Windows 98/ME - C:\WINDOWS\CONTROL.EXE Sysdm.cpl, System,1
Windows 2K/XP - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\devmgmt.msc

Click on the 'Next' button then type in 'Device Manager' for the shortcut name and click 'Finish'.
