Windows 7: Enable and disable hardware command...?

Enable and disable hardware command...?

Hi,

I recently disabled several hardware items on my laptop (CDROM, PCMCIA, etc.) to save the battery life.

My question is, is there a way to setup a "command" to enable and disable these hardware without going to the Control Panel, etc.?

Many thanks in advance.

Regards,

A shorter route would be Start > right click on Computer > Properties > Device Manager. Is that any help?

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

I was looking for an icon (.cmd) on the desktop.

Thanks again and no hard feelings.

Hello Ekopaxus,

You can use this Device Manager shortcut to make it easier to do.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
