Hotkey for "Scan for hardware changes"


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know off the top of their head if there is a hotkey to "Scan for hardware changes" (in Computer Managment\Device Manager...)

or if there isn't a hotkey... does anyone know how to perform the scan without the use of the mouse?

Just asking... otherwise i have to go and use mouse clicks... i just try to avoid it when i can...

Geez... i am useless this morning....

I don't know of a good way.... Here's one that relies on Send..... It's better to use ControlSend, but SysTreeViews are not really supported yet.

$title = "Computer Management"
Run("mmc.exe compmgmt.msc", @SystemDir)
WinWait($title)
Send("d")
Send("{TAB}")
sleep(2000);hard-coded delay...
Send("{AppsKey}a") ;bring up right-click menu

The command-line utility "devcon" referenced in the following thread can be told to do a re-scan. It may help in your situation...
