I want to use the Windows command line to enumerate through devices connected to a computer and return information.

How do I do this?

Thanks

You do this by using the devcon.exe utility.

It ships with Windows Driver Kit. Select just the Tools in the installation wizard if you do not need the rest of the kit.

Refer to The DevCon command-line utility functions as an alternative to Device Manager for specific commands. I imagine you would start with something like

devcon find *
