Hey, I'm using windows 8, but, when I'm going to open devices and printers in control panel it suddenly stops working and shows 'Not Responding' tap. Same problem occurs when I'm going to print a document or any file and even when I'm going to connect any device to bluetooth. So fix it up for me guys.

Make a new, test, Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows Account and try Devices and Printers in the new account.

If the issue is not account related, try SFC and DISM.

System File Checker:

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run SFC /SCANNOW.
Allow to complete, restart or, preferably, shut down the computer and then start up again.
Test to see if the problem has been corrected.

DISM:

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator.
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Scanhealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
Restart the computer and test.
