Windows 7: No Devices and Printer Folder

Windows 7 64 bit
 
 
No Devices and Printer Folder

Good day,
I use Windows 7 64 bit.
I cannot open the folder devices and printer folder. The folder is empty.
I can print correctly using MS office or others programs (see attached).
Any suggestion please?
Thank you in advance.
Devcon

That's a new one. I would run the system file checker tool (sfc /scannow) to see if any files are missing or corrupted.

Hello Devconex, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might consider a repair install then.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
