Show all devices that ever connected to your PC

To show all devices that ever connected to your Windows computer, do the following. Open a command prompt and type

set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1

Then, in the same command prompt, type

devmgmt.msc

to start the device manager.

In the device manager mmc choose View -> Show hidden devices.

This will be gone when you close the command prompt. To make things permanent set the system variable devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices with value 1.
