Windows 11 no longer allows opening classic Devices and Printers interface via Control Panel.

Control Panel

Instead, it opens Bluetooth & Devices view in Windows 11 Settings. This would be all well and good, however, Windows 11 Settings still doesn't have some capabilities needed to deal with broken printers or drivers.


For now, there are still a few ways to open the classic Devices and Printers:

  • Paste the following text into Run dialog and press Entershell:::{A8A91A66-3A7D-4424-8D24-04E180695C7A}  
  • Right-click on Devices and Printers in Control Panel and click Open
  • Open Control Panel and paste the following text into the address bar: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Devices and Printers
