Why does my R4 17 with 32 GB Ram take that long to open Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers?

Also this laptop is much slower at doing simple tasks than my MacBook Pro is? Why would this be?

Macbook Pro
- 2.3 Ghz i7
- 16 GB 1600 Mhz DDR3
- GT 750M
- 512 SSD

Alienware
-2.6 Ghz i7-6700HQ
- 32 GB Ram
- GTX 1070 w/ 8 GB
- 512 SSD

I believe its a Win 10 setting. All three of my Win 10 systems do that. All my printers are network printers but it also finds my cable boxes, TV, A/V Receiver and other devices connected to my home network. I think there is a way to limit the devices it searches for thus will be quicker.
