Missing Options In Windows 10 Device Manager

In this post, we will be showing you how you can get all the actions in Device Manager.

If you have expanded the “Action” menu in Device Manager on your PC or laptop to notice that it’s missing “Scan for hardware changes”, “Add legacy hardware”, “Devices and Printers” and “Properties”, then there is a simple reason for this.

Why Are The Options Missing In Action Menu In Device Manager?

The reason you are missing the options in the action menu is because you need to select a device or category.

Once you have clicked on a device or category you will then have the options available and you can now carry on and use Device Manager like you normally would. It can be a little confusing when the action menu is not showing all the options upon first loading Device Manager.
