When I open the "Devices and Printers" window, the green status bar gets all the way to the end and then just stops with no items showing in the window. I left the window open for 45min with no change.
I have tried several fixes I've found from searching, turning on the bluetooth service, stopping/starting the printer spooler service, increasing the size of the registry and nothing works.
I had a colleague log onto my machine with his AD credentials and he had the same issue, so it doesn't appear to be an issue with my profile. Any ideas? Below are my desktop specs:
